Cobain - Rose feud detailed in Goldberg's book

A recently-published excerpt from Danny Goldberg's new book, Bumping into Geniuses gives a new account of the famous feud between Kurt Cobain and Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose. The bad blood made Cobain pass a massive arena tour with Guns N' Roses and Metallica, although he liked the latter.

When Rose asked to meet him backstage after a show, Kurt slipped out of his dressing room. "Rose had the kind of macho rock persona that Kurt detested," Goldberg writes.

Promoters tried to launch a tour with Nirvana, Metallica and Guns N' Roses. "There was a lot of money on the table," says Goldberg, who served as president of the Atlantic, Warner Bros. and Mercury labels. "Kurt really liked Metallica." But there wasn't enough money in the world to get him to share a stage with that other band. Cobain passed.
