The 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death (April 5) is almost here and if Courtney Love has her way, the Nirvana frontman's life story could be headed for the stage. In an interview with NME, Love expressed interest in pushing for a musical devoted to her late husband if A-list writers, producers and directors got on board.
