Make room Keith Richards, according to a new book Courtney Love considered snorting the ashes of  Kurt Cobain  in the weeks following the Nirvana's star's death.

Music journalist Neil Strauss alleges he was with the Hole singer in Los Angeles when she 'introduced' him to the cremated ashes of the rock icon.

And, in his just-released collection of rock interviews, the writer claims Love suggested snorting the remains up her nose.

Strauss insists the rocker was "serious when she made the suggestion".

According to his new book, Love said, "Too bad you don't do coke. Otherwise I'd suggest taking a metal straw to it."
