Firstly, I don't think you really mean that they "hemmed and hawed"- that would mean they stammered as a delaying tactic while they thought of something to say.
Okay, how about "carried on".
Second, I don't think you can find a single quote of either Krist or Dave complaining about not controlling Nirvana's legacy. Find me a quote. You can't BECAUSE IT NEVER HAPPENED.
You mean they never sued her or issued an open letter to Nirvana fans claiming that Nirvana was "their" music and attacking her personally and viciously?http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1451445/grohl-novoselic-respond-loves-suit.jhtml
She is out of her mind and has been for 20 years, but you have this knee jerk action to defend her because she's a woman.
Actually, I haven't defended her at all, in this thread or elsewhere. What I've actually said is, if you would read it, that she is a hot mess, that her statement on the Muppets matter means nothing since she's sold her rights away, that who knows what state of mind she's in, and that she hasn't handled his legacy well.
You simply assume I am defending her because she is a woman and I am a feminist and you have knee-jerk ideas about feminists. So who's zoomin' who? All I'm saying is that again, like it or not, this is what Kurt wanted.
He never would have wanted those published.
Probably shouldn't have left her as his executor then.
