I was working in a music store at the time.

Naturally we sold out of everything by the next day.

I don't think I had heard of Nirvana or Cobain until Nevermind came out. I actually do remember the first time I heard it. It was recommended to me by one of the employees at Pagan Rhythms in Dallas, which I'm sure no longer exists. I knew it was going to be huge after one listen.

Wow, today is the day. 21 years ago, Kurt Cobain was found dead of a self inflicted gunshot wound. I was reading an article from Rolling Stone interviewing KC's daughter, Francis Bean. They were discussing a new documentary called Montage of Heck about KC. I know a lot has been said about KC and his legacy, but his music is still played on the radio. It's been joked that death is a (good) career move. KC's death always signaled to me the end of the grunge era in music. Say what you will, but it was a great time in music. I was 21 when he died. I had a closet full of flannels. (They were pretty comfy ) Plus, I was full of angst myself. Like many, I wasn't surprised he took his own life. He had tried weeks earlier. It ain't easy being a rock star.

Well, it was created on the 20th anniversary of his death. Were you a Nirvana fan?

yeah, still am
the art still lives

I was driving in my car, heard it on the radio. Seemed like a waste, but one never knows how much pain one is in when they do something like that. So sometimes I kind find a sad happiness knowing that their pain has stopped.

Had flannel shirts before then, still got some. I tend to hang on to old clothes, try and do the same thing with friends.

I agree. It was a waste, but if he was in such pain (be it mentally or physically) at least he put an end to his suffering. I had my flannels for a long time too. They were always popular. The grunge scene just made them trendy with the hipsters, who wouldn't have been caught dead (pardon the pun) in them five years earlier. His music lives on, plus his daughter looks like him.

Thumbs Up

I just finished watching a documentary on Netflix called Soaked in Bleach. The film focuses on the PI that Courtney Love hired to find Kurt when he had gone missing. I won't give any spoilers, but it certainly gives a new perspective (at least for me) on the circumstances surrounding Kurt's death.

I'm on the fence about wanting to watch that documentary. I'm still waiting to see Montage of Heck.

I've seen both and I think you'll get more insight from Soaked in Bleach.
