Activision and the other Nirvana dudes respond to Courtney's tweet-sanity

A press release sent from the Foo Fighters' publicist, delivered via e-mail rather than Twitter:

"Activision is responding to queries regarding the usage of Kurt Cobain's likeness in Guitar Hero 5 with the following statement: 'Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain's likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero® 5.'"


"Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the two surviving members of Nirvana, have no say whatsoever in the usage of Kurt Cobain's likeness."
