In the early 90s Courtney Love was dating the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan. She was in Europe with the band and Corgan would pay to fly her to the next show in the festival circuit so she ened up on the ferry. Who else was on the ferry? The boys in Nirvana and a young Kurt Cobain. Love and Corgan would split a few months later and Love would start dating Cobain in 1991.
Consequence of Sound types out what she said in the interview clip which shows up on the DVD of Montage of Heck.
“When [Kurt and I] were still platonic, I was on the ferry, Billy Corgan would not pay for my flight back from Roskilde, and Nirvana had played with the Pumpkins at that show, so I was on the ferry with the Nirvana guys,” Love explained.
“I had a crush on Kurt, he was gorgeous, I mean he was beautiful, and enigmatic, and evasive. This was after Reading, but I still was dating and sleeping with Billy Corgan, but he kind of lost me at this moment, this wasn’t the moment that he specifically lost me, that would be about six to eight months later, but he kind of lost me at this moment.’”
