16 Years Ago Today: I Was 19, He was 27


On this day in 1994, Kurt Cobain killed himself. I was 19 at the time.  When a music lover's favourite artist shoots himself in the head, it tends to be a pretty big fucking deal.  When that music lover is a teenager, you upgrade that BFD to DEFCON 2.

If you're looking to revisit the short but stellar career of Nirvana, check out my Nirvana primer.  I wrote that one off the top of my head, because I was there and I remember.

If you're looking for some stuff I've written about Kurt Cobain over the years, you might want to start with this one and then crawl through my Nirvana category archive.

Kurt was pure genius, and I miss him.
