Kurt: on life  

KurtI really haven't had that exciting of a life. There are a lot of things I wish I would have done, instead of just sitting around and complaining about having a boring life. So I pretty much like to make it up. I'd rather tell a story about somebody else. ~ Kurt Cobain

Kurt: On Being Different 

I knew I was different. I thought that I might be gay or something because I couldn't identify with any of the guys at all. None of them liked art or music, they just wanted to fight and get laid. It was many years ago but it gave me this real hatred for the average American macho male. ~ Kurt Cobain

Kurt: Lyrics

KurtWhy in the hell do journalists insist on coming up with a second rate Freudian evaluation on my lyrics when 90 percent of the time they've transcribed the lyrics incorrectly?  ~ Kurt Cobain

Controversy: Advocate  

Kurt Cobain AdvocateIt's 4 o'clock on a cold Seattle afternoon, and Kurt Cobain, the lyricist-guitarist-lead singer of Nirvana, is sitting in a downtown hotel room, playing with his 5-month-old daughter, Frances, while his wife, Courtney Love-lead singer of her own band, Hole-applies her makeup. At the moment, the Cobains (including the baby) are on the cover of Spin magazine-which has named Nirvana as Artist of the Year-and the band's new album, Incesticide, is due out within the week. The Nirvana media machine should be in high gear.

Michael Azerrad Interview:

Analyzing his own songs at length reminded Kurt of something. "I'm just starting to realize why I had such a hard time with interviews when this record came out," he said. "People were going through the songs and trying to get me to explain them and I just don't even have any opinions on them. They are all basically saying the same thing: I have this conflict between good and evil and man and woman and that's about it." 

Blog

I met Kurt in 1986 during a telephone call. I was introduced to him by Andrew Wood.  Kurt and I continued to talk on the telephone until the week he died in 1994.  I started a blog to journal my memories of our shared conversations.
