Drugged-up Stevie Nicks, feuds with Kurt Cobain: Inside MTV News’ glory days
Not a lot of news anchors would be suspected of helping to trash a pair of hotel rooms and still keep their jobs.
But such was the case when Kurt Loder, then the face of recently shut-down MTV News, aimed to settle a feud with Kurt Cobain in 1992.
It grew out of the the grunge star souring on Loder after he publicized a Vanity Fair article about Courtney Love doing drugs while pregnant.
Cobain and wife Love hated the article and suddenly hated Loder as well.
When the Nirvana frontman expressed an interest in making amends, Loder hopped a jet to Minneapolis and met the rocker mid-tour.
