I was aware of Nirvana long before their first recording of “Bleach” due to a very particular circumstance. I lived so far up on a Mountain that frequencies carried to Ohio from as far as Florida on the radio, and funnily I had a wah wah Pedal that if you turned it on and set it in a precise spot it picked up Cuban Radio! In the Early and mid 80’s the cassette was still a highly used Media and I found a strange radio station that played cassette recordings of demos and work tapes of bands unheard of outside their home base. The band intrigued me back then. 

So when “Bleach” and “Nevermind’ were out I was already a fan. I Followed their career and studied everything I could find well after Kurt’s death. I thought I knew about pretty much everything there was to know. That was until today when Chris Dempsy sent me a video we are going to share with you now. This is Kurt the human, not the King of Grunge.

Musically Kurt was a fan of Diverse nature as well, Hawkwind, a plethora of punk and alternative music, and Daniel Johnston whose T-Shirt He made famous. If you don’t know about Daniel, look him up, it doesn’t get more interesting than His life story. Here are Kurt’s top 50 albums.

There is some discussion on a Kurt Cobain Hologram show with Krist and Dave. If it comes to fruition remains to be seen. I was thrilled to see the people called upon to step up to the Mic at Nirvana’s induction into The Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Joan Jett, Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, and others.

I’m sure there will always be Mystery surrounding Kurt Cobain. I prefer to celebrate his life as opposed to many who mark his Demise. In Place of R.I.P. I say  Thank you to the Universe Kurt Cobain Born February 20, 1967.
