“When Kurt passed away none of his friends checked up on me to see if I were okay. I could have been having a nervous breakdown and that would have been a-okay. That hurt so bad. Well, that’s a fucking lie. Pat Smear cared. A day after Kurt… was found dead, he came over unexpectedly with a ton of groceries and nicotine patches. He [Pat Smear] told me that he knew I was probably running low on food. He said I needed to quit smoking for Frances. Pat told me I needed to quit all the drugs. Hahaha, yeah. He was the male figure support system in my life when Kurt… died. I wish he would have joined Hole. I fucking love him.” -Courtney Love on Pat Smear, 1997.
