(Via:@) Man shares his story + new image of himself & Kurt Cobain.
“At the end of the show we headed over to the side of the stage half expecting to be denied and the huge sumo wrestler looking security just opened the gate and welcomed us through. Once inside another handler took us back to the dressing room and in through a small door and bam, there they were; Novoselic, Cobain and Grohl.”
“I know you can’t pick your audience, but I’d rather not have one than be stuck with people whose very existence goes against everything I believe in.” - Kurt Cobain.
This is a painting my wife made for me one Christmas. She used various photos to come up with the coloring of Kurt’s skin, hair and eyes. The original photo is in black and white. The red background is based off the “Heart-Shaped Box” video which is my favorite video by Nirvana. This hangs in my music room/office.
My sketch of Kurt
From an April 27th interview, 1990:
Eventually, after an hour of negotiation and hurried beer consumption, Nirvana get into their groove, only tonight it’s a little special. Chris’ head looks red enough to bleed [shaved], while Kurdt has taken it on himself to don an audience member’s dress. In return he gives them one of the band’s hugely desirable tour T-shirts, which depict a naked John Lennon and Yoko with Sub Pop’s Jonathan and Bruce’s heads grafted on instead.
