Before Courtney, Kurt had a few girlfriends including Tracy Mirander, Toby Vail & even briefly dated musician Mary Lou Lord. Mary Lou Lord met Kurt Cobain on Sept. 21st 1991 while the Nirvana front man was in Boston. Nevermind was not out yet, but I knew almost every song on the album back to front. I had an advance copy for weeks and I knew it was something very special. Nirvana were about to begin the Nevermind release tour and it was released 3 days after we met. Kurt and I struck up a very intense, although brief, thanks to Courtney (Love), who later entered into the picture, relationship. He introduced me to a few people that would later change the course of my life."
