I like to have a bit of a laugh too ;)
Jon Savage: Speaking of Axl, what is the story behind your altercation with him backstage at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards?
Kurt Cobain: Well, apparently Axl was in a really bad mood. Something set him off, probably just minutes before our encounter with him. We were in the food tent and I was holding my daughter, Frances, and he came strutting by five of his huge bodyguards and a person with a movie camera. Courtney jokingly screamed out at him, “Axl, will you be the godfather of our child?” Everyone laughed. We had a few friends around us, and he just stopped dead in his tracks and started screaming all these abusive words at us. He told me to shut my bitch up, so I looked over at Courtney and said, “Shut up, bitch, heh!” Everybody started howling with laughter, and Axl just kind of blushed and went away. Afterward, we heard that Duff [McKagan, GNR bassist] wanted to beat Krist up.Kurt Cobain, interview with Jon Savage, 7/22/93 (via dexlysic)
