Kurt Cobain

It’s been 19 years since Kurt Cobain shot himself (the coroner reckoned it was today he shot himself but he wasn’t found til a few days later, so maybe yesterday or tomorrow is the true anniversary? We’ll never know). So to celebrate him and his pretty flawless band, I waded through tumblr to find some photographic gems. There were billions I’d never seen before. Nirvana and the Beastie Boys are the two bands you can spend hours looking at photos of. The best Tumblr for this stuff was this one.


And… here’s the video that Dylan Carlson/Earth made for their song Tallahassee that recreates Dylan buying the gun he gave to Kurt that ended up shooting him.

    Kurt changed my life with his insightful and surreal music and lyrics. I only wished he could have stuck around to make more to listen to for future generations. I was compelled to compose a portrait of him In Memoriam recently on the anniversary of his death on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/04/in-memoriam-kurt-cobain-and-lane-staley.html Drop in and tell me your memories of his music and how it’s affected you.
