Or so she told former Village Voice writer and professional smarm Neil Strauss after offering him a line too. At least she wanted to snort him with a metal straw--no rolled-up $20s for this rock icon's mortal remains!
Here's a half-gram rail from Strauss' rock on RadarOnline, which is a preview for his forthcoming book Everybody Loves You When You're Dead.
"The place was Courtney Love's house in Los Angeles. The time was very late. The moment was when she leaped off her bed and suddenly said . . .
"COURTNEY LOVE: Say hi to Kurt.
"She walks to a dresser, pulls open a drawer, and removes a square-shaped tin. She removes the lid, revealing a plastic bag full of white ashes. A faint smell of jasmine emanates from the tin.
"LOVE: Too bad you don't do coke. Otherwise I'd suggest taking a metal straw to it.
"STRAUSS: Yeah, I don't think that would be the right thing to do.
"She was critical when she done the suggestion. She essentially pronounced she would indicate his remains to me initial to call and then pronounced she would similar to them. But the thought was nixed as I don't do coke"
It should be noted that Love didn't actually snort Kurt's ashes--at least not in Strauss' presence. But he maintains that she was quite serious about it.
I guess what's good enough for Keith Richards' dad is good enough for the godfather of grunge.
