Kurt Donald Cobain, we all know him as the frontman from Nirvana, and a huge influence on an entire generation. People and fans were crushed when he died in 1994, including his band members.
In a recent interview with Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, and Krist Novoselic, the remaining band members said they have actually gotten together and played as Nirvana a few times. And they confirmed that thinking about the old days of NIrvana still makes them sad, just like the rest of the Kurt fans around the world. Grohl said his daughter recently sang every word of “Come As You Are” when it came on the radio randomly, which was cool because they’d never talked about that song before, and he’d never played it for her. And they really hadn’t talked much about Nirvana in general. But after hearing her sing every word, they had a conversation about Nirvana and Kurt, and she wondered if he was shy around people he knew, or shy around people he didn’t know. What a thoughtful question from an eleven-year-old.
