On this day in 1994, Kurt Kobain killed himself.
At first I hated Nirvana. The first thing I noticed about them was their poor musicianship, but when I look back on them I realize just how important they were. Kurt was the real thing. His music came from his soul. There was nothing at all phony about Nirvana. Kurt was tortured by his drug addiction and an unhappy childhood. He gave voice to his pain through his music.
