|COURTNEY LOVE has apologised to bassist DUFF McKAGAN on behalf of her late husband KURT COBAIN, who viciously slammed the rocker's former band GUNS N' ROSES.
The NIRVANA star publicly blasted the PARADISE CITY rockers when his pioneering grunge outfit launched to international success, and reportedly mocked GN'R bandmembers at a high profile live event in the early 1990s.
However, McKagan - credited with being one of the last, if not the last, person to speak to Cobain before he committed suicide in April 1994 - urged Love not to apologise to him for Cobain's harsh comments, because he never took them to heart.
He says, "I've talked to her a couple times since I've been sober. This time she was sweet, just really nice, and healthy. She started apologising to me for what Kurt (Cobain) said, criticising Guns N' Roses, and I said there is nothing to apologise for. That's rock 'n' roll."
McKagan and Cobain sat next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles - where the iconic singer had fled a rehabilitation centre - back to their Seattle hometown. Days later, Cobain was discovered dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in his garage.
