Default Is Courtney Love the new Yoko Ono?

Let's compare...

Widow of very talented rock star who died a violent death

Has own low-quality music career, which no one would support if hadn't been married to a star.

Income comes mosty from royalities of dead partner's music.

Whore's out part of deceased star's private life for money- Cobain's journals, tapes of Lennon singing to his kids.

Comments?

Before Nevermind, Hole were actually more successful than Nirvana.

As much as I hate The Beatles, I have to point out that although John Lennon was a talented musician, Kurt Cobain was not.

I'm not sure committing suicide would be considered a violent death, either.

I agree that it's tough to compare Kurt Cobain to John Lennon, especially from a musical skill standpoint.

I disagree that Hole could not have made it without the name recognition of Nirvana/Cobain. I covered several Hole concerts in their heyday for a newspaper and magazine in CT, and the shows were all great. The songs were good too, from both a lyrical and vocal perspective. I'll give you that they will not likely stand the test of time, like Nirvana or the Beatles, but they were good at the time.

Yoko Ono would probably be a lot more respected artistically if she hadn't married John Lennon.

lol. someone should really close this.

For the record, Kurt Cobain is lefted handed. He was given a right handed guitar, and he turned it upside down and practised for hours on end.

Dunno why I'm bothering.

EDIT: Even if Courtney was self taught and Kurt was taught by a professional teacher, I'm sure the more technical accomplished guitarist would be the one who had professional teachings.

Hadn't both Courtney and Yoko already established themselves in their respecive fields?Beyond that I don't see where this really can go.
