    What a bunch of BS. Kurt wanted to be an actor at an early age. If the camera was running, he was acting. I met him in 1983 while he was hanging out with Joe Elliott of Def Leppard. Courtney Love showed up in late '84 looking for a part in a movie that they were working on (Sid & Nancy) that was Kurt's brainchild. Him and Joe got Tommy Lee of Motley Crue involved because they knew he hung out with the punk band Circle Jerks. Besides, Courtney Love is not her real name. I have the real Courtney Love's obit from Jan 1985 before the actress made her debut. Kurt was involved with another girl (a singer/songwriter and a redhead) from 1983 till his death who did not want the public eye. She is writing her autobiography which will include her time with them and how Kurt made connections to her in his songs, his bio and journal. It is her real name that means beLOVEd. That is why this doc is coming to light.

    Musician Frank Zappa talked about Hilter's "Big Lie Theory" in reference to the music industry in his book and a song. Basically, people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it. To keep up the lie even in the face of looking ridiculous.

    Joe Elliott's birthday is Aug. 1st. Kurt made it seem as if he had an obsession with actress Frances Farmer because she died Aug. 1st. The birth flower for Aug. is the poppy and why Kurt used the image of the poppy field in a music vid. Heroin is derived from the opium poppy.
