Courtney Love - Courtney Love: Kurt Cobain musical is very likely

Courtney Love says a Broadway musical about Kurt Cobain is ''very likely'' to happen.

The Hole singer previously insisted she wouldn't want a play about her late husband, who committed suicide aged 27 in 1994, but has since changed her mind and has discussed it with her 21-year-old daughter Frances, her only child with the Nirvana singer.

She told NME magazine: ''Remember I said I'd never do a musical? Well, that's not exactly true anymore. After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social-media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen.''

The 49-year-old singer insists there would have to be a ''great story'' to the play that has not been told before and she would dedicate her time to make sure it was a success.

She said: ''I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected onstage for not only the world to see, but more importantly, for our daughter to see.''

Courtney claims Kurt's ''spirit'' would be there stage with the cast and sitting in the theatre with Frances for the ''most emotional experience of our lives.''

She added: ''It's an event I feel Kurt wanting me to make happen, an event that pays tribute to his art, to his fans and to his family, an event that's both rocking and personal.''
