My role in Kurt Cobain's death…

My role in Kurt Cobain's death…

Ten years ago today, apparently, Kurt Cobain died. My role in his death was relatively minor, but an important one (I feel – well, I would, I’m a self-obsessed narcissistic boy like most bloggers!).

Ten years ago, I was in Seattle for a week on Spring Break, for a holiday. The day after I left, Kurt Cobain died. He must have seen me walking around Seattle’s bars and concluded, quite rightly, that the grunge music revolution would soon be coming to an end.

Thus, I missed by a week what some might say would be the defining moment of Generation X- Kurt Cobain’s memorial service where Courtney Love read out elements from his suicide note.

Mind you, I’d have only gone out of ghoulishness – I never quite got the whole grunge/Nirvana thing.

And of course I was in Seattle a week ago, hanging out with a friend. And revisiting old haunts. It’s a great city, with a good vibe. Which is always good. It even has public transportation of sorts!

Jetlag. Don’cha love it?

    My friend Bubbles and i think that Kurt’s suicide note should be typed as it is very hard to make sense of the hand-written version.In this sense we meen no disrespect but wish to understand what he was feeling as he is such a rock legend and one which even though not with us will live on in the heart’s of generations here and to come.

  • i always think about kurt and my friends get annoyed when i talk about him,but i don't what they think.when i think of kurt cobain i say to myself not to kill myself because what good will that do even though people don't even care about me.i need to live my life to try and change it and make it better.i wrote a poem for kurt titled "Kurt Cobain":He was a great man people looked up to.He was a hero.He was also part of fantastic trio.He died at age 27.Now he's up in heaven.He was shot in the head and he bled.it was said he commit suicide.If he knew me I'd be by his side.I think someone sent out to kill him.I feel like I'm being torn apart limb by limb.He looked so lonely sometimes.how can someone commit such a crmie.He was found about three days after he died.I doubt he commit suicide.Maybe he had enimies,but now he just lives through peoples memories.

  • Even though I was only three1/2 when he died I kind of understood.Now that I'm older I understand.I miss him,but hes gone…atleast on earth.He still lives in my heart & my crazy,sickminded,weird mind.I LOVE YOU KURT COBAIN

  • R.I.P Kurt
    One day the truth will be known in the world that kurt was murdered! His music, soul and sprirt will live with me for the rest of my life and afterwards. Now 10 years on people will find out about kurt and let his soul be remembered for what it was. Kurt, there will be justice for you! one day! Who said grunge was dead? i believe its very much alive! and will always be…
    Thanks Luke in the U.K

    Kurt Cobain is and always will be a legend, he was murdered, he had everything to live for. His murder has been covered up, but some people have spoken out one day the truth will come out, and I hope I am here to see it. You're in my heart Kurt xx Trinity

  • kurt is an inexplicably great man. as i sit here, mourning him, collecting every trace i can of his life, listeneing to his beautiful understanding of energy and life through his songs, i fucking hate courtney love for her obvious crime, but i respect her for bringing love and hope into kobains life although she has no fucking understanding of the man. we all love him. even if you dont like his music, his soul, his life, you cant not love the man inside. my one wish for all of eternity is he as well as us find a place to escape our pain, as kurts horrible stomach, as our troubles, and wounds and learn to love and embrace. Kurt would of wanted that. tonight, add an extra prayer for his afterlife happiness.
    love,
    will
