Kurt Cobain was a big fan of vintage Epiphones (he probably would have loved the Crestwood Custom
) and you can be sure filmmaker Brett Morgen will find a lot of great Kurt and Epi footage when he starts putting together his documentary on Cobain next year.
Morgen, whose documentary on The Rolling Stones, Crossfire Hurricane, debuted last night on HBO, told the New York Post that Courtney Love approached him about telling Cobain's story.
"We've been trying to find the right time to put this film together and the time is now," said Morgen. "Kurt was not only an amazing songwriter and musician, he was an incredible artist and filmmaker. So we are going to do the movie sort of like a third-person autobiography--as if Kurt was around and making a film about his life."
Morgen is currently compiling interviews and finding footage. "We've been looking under every rock, going through the archives. It will be music never heard before, and I've conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far."
