Kurt Cobain 30 years gone
« on: April 04, 2024, 08:43:56 am »
Thirty years…where did the time go?

I remember I was driving around Arlington with my best friend when I heard. I guess I shouldn’t have been but I was pretty shocked.

MTV started replaying the MTV Unplugged Nirvana show pretty quickly and the canonization started….

It was a pretty big bummer…still is…

I was at a school dance... lol. Still remember vividly as well.

Awful to say, but gotta assume Kurt wouldn't have made it until now whether or not he killed himself then or a later date via a gun or droogs.

It's funny to listen back to nevermind that was considered "grunge" at the time, yet to me now it seems so polished. What say you, hutch?

Of course the real question here...would Kurt have stayed "woke" or would he have participated in Jan 6th?

Yeah I agree underneath it all it’s  a pretty pop album…I think Butch Vig deserves a bit of credit for that…

Of course Kurt deserves most of the credit…dude could write!!

From everything I have read Kurt would have broken up Nirvana and gone solo or recorded with Michael Stipe.

I think 95% of people didn’t know they had done the unplugged. Then Kurt dies and MTV starts playing it multiple times a day - and playing the man who sold the world cover all the time-and the record company puts it out posthumously. The perfect posthumous album! Opens a whole new audience for Nirvana.

Worked out great for everyone but Kurt…

I mean, Novoselic went the other way (https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/jun/03/nirvana-krist-novoselic-praises-trumps-strong-and-direct-protest-speech).  Maybe Kurt would've too, or would be dueting with Lin Manuel Miranda...it's a vast multiverse
