The surviving members of NIRVANA are fed up with being in limbo.
Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic's ongoing legal battle with Courtney Love, the widow of their bandmate Kurt Cobain, has held up the release of a NIRVANA boxed set, which is to include "You Know You're Right", the last song Cobain recorded with the band before his 1994 suicide.
Now Grohl and Novoselic are demanding that Love see a psychiatrist. And in a motion filed in a Seattle court, the musicians say she must do it by June 1 — and that they want to choose the shrink.
In December, Grohl and Novoselic claimed in court papers that Love was "irrational, mercurial, self-centered, unmanageable, inconsistent and unpredictable," the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported.
"Shades of Frances Farmer," said Love's lawyer, O. Yale Lewis, referring to the iconoclastic Hollywood actress forced to undergo horrifying psychiatric treatments.
