Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, 1992
"This picture has never been shown," says Lavine of an outtake for a Sassy magazine photo shoot from 1993. "There was a little drama with this shoot: we had to send the band the pictures so they could approve it. They were a little wacky, I don't know. I guess there was a lot of pressure on them and how they were to be perceived. This was the only session of them in the studio together. And they totally loved each other. They were all over each other. Kurt was really stoned that day."
