Posted Wednesday, April 2nd 2014 @ 11am

Courtney Love says a musical on the life of Kurt Cobain is "very likely."

The widow of the Nirvana front-man tells NME that she has agreed with her and Kurt's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, to find a team to create a musical on the life of Kurt Cobain.

Love says, "There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before.  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 on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see.  I know her father's spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theatre with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives."

Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10.  That is five days after the 20th anniversary of Cobain's death.

"There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn't been told before. 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 on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see.
