The New York Times just ran a profile on Jeff Jampol, who oversees Jampol Artist Management. Jampol handles the estates of legacy-act musicians and performers like Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, and many more.
Among the estates that Jampol manages, he has recently acquired Kurt Cobain. Jampol has been working with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain to organize a touring exhibition that will highlight “Kurt’s works and his art and his possessions.”
As the Times points out, Courtney Love signed over the rights to Cobain’s name to their daughter in 2010. Brett Morgen’s official Kurt Cobain documentary, which Frances Bean Cobain executive produced, was released in 2015.
