Courtney Love: Kurt is hard to follow

Courtney Love admits Kurt Cobain is a "hard act to follow" as a lover.

The Hole singer is currently single and admits watching new documentary 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck' reminded her of the strong sexual relationship she had with her late husband, who committed suicide in 1994.

Speaking to the film's director Brett Morgen for V magazine, she said: "It f**ked me up. I remembered the sexual relationship, which, as you know, is the core of any good marriage. It almost rendered other intimacies meaningless.

"I don't have a boyfriend right now, so I'm single. [The film] made me really evaluate what, at the age of 50, I want out of a relationship. He's a hard act to follow. I love him and I always will."

The documentary contains video and audio which Courtney and her daughter Frances - who was just 20 months old when her father died - had never seen and the 'Malibu' rocker says watching the film has helped the artist come to terms with the Nirvana star's suicide.

She said: "To see it in that room with my daughter was very cathartic and I was very happy to spend a little time with him and to find out, to see things and hear audio, and see into his heart.

"It was an important moment of bonding between Frances and me, and I think it's very healing for our family and for our relationship.

"Many people who've suffered the after-effects of suicide, and in Frances' case, like any child of suicide, she wondered what part she played in it and why wasn't she important enough?

"I think the film points out that absolutely, without a doubt, from whatever age it is that he starts talking about it, that that was where he was headed."
