NEWS - Bono & Michael Stipe On Courtney Love's Potential Witness List
07/12/2002



(7/12/02, 5 p.m. ET) -- U2's Bono and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe are on a potential witness list for Courtney Love in her current legal battle with Dave Grohl and Krist Noveselic over the control of Nirvana music, merchandising, and marketing.

According to a spokesperson for Love, Bono and Stipe are among the people that she's talked to about Nirvana-related issues. Bono reportedly once offered advice to the late Kurt Cobain on coping with rock stardom and celebrity fame, but was turned away at the time, which Love reportedly regrets. In addition, Stipe and Cobain were talking about collaborating just prior to Cobain's suicide.

The spokesperson did add that Love and her representatives are working to avoid a trial situation where celebrities, friends, and associates would have to be called to testify. Love is also engaged in a lawsuit against Universal Music Group and has been working in the studio on material for a new album.

In April, Bono appeared as a character witness for R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, who was charged with being drunk and disorderly on a British Airways flight. Taking the oath under his given name of Paul David Hewson, he testified on Buck's behalf. Buck was cleared of the charges.

Ugh! Why does Courtney have to use Bono against Nirvana. They were such a great band too (much better than Hole, lol) and it's sad that all that's left is a bunch of legal battles over old songs.
