“It’s such a cliche thing to say: ‘Once we’re not having fun anymore we’re just going to quit.’ Everyone says that. It happens when you reach a certain age. But there’s still people like Neil Young. There’s still a handful of people like that who’ve never lost their sights. To mature, to me, to use examples of other bands, is to wimp out. To put up an image that isn’t sincere anymore. That’s why I hope to destroy my career before it’s too late. Before I look ridiculous. There are plenty of things I would like to do when I’m older.” - Kurt Cobain.
Nirvana played in Boston back in 1991, just seven minutes away from where the explosions took place. Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved.
19 years ago today, Kurt Cobain died in his Seattle home.
“I had a shitty life till I was about 17. I sat in my room for 90 per cent of the time. I’d go home after school, play my guitar and listen to music. The States seemed so big to me that I thought I’d never leave the region. At a younger age, everything seemed so simple and easy, I thought I could be President. By the age of nine, I pretty much gave up any idea of ever even surviving the age of 21 because I felt so completely alienated. I probably alienated myself more than the other way round. I was always trying find someone who liked art or music, but it was always sports.” - Kurt Cobain.
