New York, Aug 20 : Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain really 'detested' Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose, according to record business eminence Danny Goldberg.
In his memoir, 'Bumping Into Geniuses', Goldberg has revealed that when Rose asked to meet Cobain backstage after a show, Kurt refused.
"Rose had the kind of macho rock persona that Kurt detested," the New Daily News quoted Goldberg, as stating in the book.
Even Cobain's wife, Courtney Love, was not keen on getting to know Rose's then-girlfriend, Victoria's Secret stunner Stephanie Seymour.
Goldberg, who served as president of Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records and Mercury Records, said that promoters tried to launch a tour with Nirvana, Metallica and Guns N' Roses.
"There was a lot of money on the table. Kurt really liked Metallica," Goldberg said.
However, there wasn't enough money in the world to get him to share a stage with that other band, he added.
