Kurt Cobain’s self portrait.
“I decided to use heroine on a daily basis because of an ongoing stomach ailment that I had been suffering from for the past five years had literally taken me to the point of wanting to kill myself. I was introduced to a medicine called buprenorphine which I found alleviates the pain within minutes.” - Kurt Cobain about his drug use/stomach problems.
Nirvana is a trio who play Heavy Rock with Punk overtones. They usually dont have jobs. So they can tour anytime.

Here is a quote from Cobain in a 1991 interview:
“I’ve always loved music more than anything else. We can say that I started to touch a guitar at 15, without really playing … I wanted to punk rock without the slightest idea what it looked like. I pretended to write a song on my punk-rock electric guitar without knowing how to play, simply by putting it thoroughly and screaming. I was hoping it was punk rock. I listened to heavy metal, Iron Maiden and Motorhead.”
“Within the months between October 1991 through December 1992, I have had four notebooks filled with two years worth of poetry and personal writings and lyrics stolen from me at separate times. Two ninety minute cassettes filled with new guitar and singing parts for new songs damaged from a plumbing accident as well as two of my most expensive favorite guitars. I’ve never been a very prolific person so when creativity flows, it flows.” - Kurt Cobain.
