Unknown sides of Cobain

There were many sides to Kurt. We hear stories of Cobain trowing a computer out the window or smashing guitars and singing great songs. We are just picking a few unknown sides of for today’s article on guitardoor we hope you enjoy.

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 Pedal that if you turned it on and set it in a precise spot it picked up Cuban Radio! In the early and mid-80s, 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 Dempsey sent me a video we are going to share with you now. This is Kurt the human, not the King of Grunge.

Kurt Cobain’s Chaotic Creative Sides

Kurt Cobain was known for his chaotic creative sides, which were evident in his music, lyrics, and artwork. Cobain’s music was a blend of punk, rock, and pop, and his lyrics were often introspective and raw.

Cobain’s creative process was often chaotic, and he would write songs and lyrics in a stream-of-consciousness style. He was known for his ability to capture emotions and feelings in his music, and his lyrics often dealt with themes of alienation, depression, and social issues. Cobain’s artwork was also reflective of his chaotic creative sides, and he often used mixed media to create collages and paintings that were raw and emotional.

Despite his chaotic creative sides, Cobain was a talented musician and artist who left a lasting impact on the music industry. His music and artwork continue to inspire and influence artists today, and his legacy lives on through his fans and the many musicians who have been influenced by his work
