Arrow Kurt Cobain - January 11th 2009, 04:49 AM

I'm one of the many people out there who have admiration for this man and his music. I used to be an avid Nirvana fan, and though my music taste's evolved into other rock subgenres since then, when i was 15 he introduced me to a better world, a world i felt an affinity with and discovered a beauty in - rock, and of course - Grunge.

What's prompted me to make this thread is i know a lot of you out there feel the same as me, and see his death (whether it be suicide or murder) as a great tragedy. I will still commemorate his birthday and passing this year, in Feb and April respectively. I was also listening to a very powerful and poignant song by the Foo Fighters from their latest album; Echoes, Silence, Patience, Grace, called Let It Die. How Dave Grohl expresses his personal feelings about his friend and former bandmate's death almost brings me to point of tears. It's so touching and tragic and incredibly moving.

Let's not focus on how he died, but more what he gave us.

He was a beautiful man with so much to give and express, which eventually contributed to his demise.

RIP Kurt Cobain <3

Maybe this is best suited in Entertainment?

But yea definitely, such a tragedy that he's gone.
I love his music
I read a book about his death and in all honesty, don't think it was suicide.
Dave Grohl is another amazing musician, and I think he's lucky to have been able to play with him.

RIP <3

You can be a skeptic over his death all you like, however bands will always do drugs. They will always do something stupid and this is how many of them end up dead.

For example Feeder's Drummer killed himself while high on cocaine.

Moved to sports and entertainment.
Move it back if you so wish.
I loved his voice though... so grungy and sexy

They published a collection of his journals and it's awesome.
Seriously he was such a clever guy.

Michy you rock I love Nirvana. I have some songs on ipod.
I read Kurt's journal a while back, it was interesting. On the cover he wrote "If you read, you will judge" I never did. Some stuff I felt I could relate to.

Nirvana made some excellent music. I do think that the manner in which Cobain died has unduly increased their popularity and made him an icon.

He might have been good but he was no Hendrix, Plant or Mercury

I love Nirvana, as every true Washingtonian should.

I really don't like to debate whether it was suicide or not, though.
And they were already very popular when he died, I really don't think it had much affect on their popularity.

A shame I wasn't even a year old...
I didn't even really get to know the music until he was gone.


So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up

I don't listen to so much rock or grunge for that matter, but I do enjoy listening to Nirvana. I do also have to say that Cobain's death did increase the popularity of Nirvana's music. I've gotta say Lithium is my favourite.

I've got his journal too and i dip into it every once in a while!
Great book. Sort of feel it's delving into his privacy, but maybe it's so we get to know him more after his death? I'm not sure. Either way, very interesting stuff...

P.S. Tibby rocks also x

He was an individual brilliance in his own right, without realising it.
