If it's possible to miss someone that you have never met, maybe we should miss him a little bit.  All things aside, he was a poet that helped define a musical genre.  Obviously a talented, but self destructive soul, his work could have gone so much farther.  His life seems to parallel that of Jim Morrison without the backdrop of the sixty's & seventy's to provide a cause and acceptance for his rebellious nature.  With the success of his band mates after his demise, should we be a little curious of where his talents may have influenced society.  Maybe this is just another opportunity wasted to Drugs, Alcohol & Mental Illness.

Listen to In Utero-Dumb.  He's an amazing poet.  The play on words is awesome.  Plus he made playing the guitar look easy by using very few chords and still having an ear for amazing hooks.  The second biggest spike in guitar sales since Jimmy Hendrix.  Everyone thought they could play.   He offed himself at a time where we will never get to know if he could of lived up to the 4 albums he made.   If you don't think Nevermind is an iconic album your probably a top 40 listener or a narrow minded listener.  It does piss me off he committed suicide.

I wonder how many really know what they are talking about and not just shooting the breeze.

Think maybe he self medicated for something that he had since a child.


Give the guy credit, he did what many will never do in spite of it.  He told me before he became famous.It started out as a medical problems.;

He was a person that was very over loaded with talent and couldn't control the mass over load going on in his mind. He was human born into sin. Only GOD knows his soul.
Be more compassionate you may find yourself in a moment of that kind of pain.
We all are imperfect!!!!!!!!!

Kurt Cobain and Nirvana: In Focus

What began as an alternative rock groundswell in the Pacific Northwest erupted in the late '80s as grunge, a fevered new strain of electric music fusing punk and heavy metal to reject the pomp and polish of corporate rock. Young bands from Portland, Olympia and Seattle carried the ... more
