Rocker Kurt Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, has approved work on upcoming book Nirvana: THE DAY TO DAY ILLUSTRATED JOURNALS.

Set for release this September (03), the collection is a journal account of some of the most memorable moments in the band's history.

Author CARRIE BORZILLO admits she drew a sigh of relief when she heard Courtney was co-operative about the book.

She says, "I was very happy when I heard that and I can quote on this, 'Courtney knows you're doing it, and she's fine with it.'

"To me that was good. So it was a blessing. Because Courtney could, um, cause trouble for people, so luckily that wasn't the situation."

Borzillo would have liked to have added interviews with Love or former Nirvana bandmembers Dave Grohl and KRIST NOVOSELIC to the book, but she couldn't get official clearance.

She explains, "Unless the band has their own book deal and they want to do it, you're not going to get those people. Legally and management-wise you're not going to be able to get anything."

Nirvana: the Day To Day Illustrated Journals is an updated version of 2000's NIRVANA: THE DAY BY DAY CHRONICLE.
