COURTNEY LOVE still harbours a secret hope her dead husband Kurt Cobain will come back from beyond the grave to save her.

The Nirvana frontman shot himself dead in 1994, leaving Love confused and lonely for years.

She confesses, "For a long time I had this fantasy - as unstable as it sounds - that my husband was going to some back from the dead and save me.

"But that's not going to happen and I know that."
