Lemonheads singer Evan Dando has been a rumored notch on Courtney Love’s bedpost ever since he and Kurt Cobain had a falling out in the early 90s. In an exclusive interview with Gigwise’s Paul Reed, Dando recently revealed that the rumor was started by Love herself in a likely attempt to make Cobain jealous.
“Courtney was saying that we were having an affair – I was never attracted to Courtney,” Dando said. “She was like ‘I made Kurt cry last night’. She is crazy.” The whole debacle troubled Dando for years because Kurt, as he says, “went to his grave misinformed” about the rumor.
There’s a bit of a trend of musicians burying the hatchet with Cobain lately (save for Brandon Flowers), including Eddie Vedder’s recent statement that, “if Kurt were around today, I know he’d say to me, ‘Well, you turned out OK.’”
