Suicide Commemoration Off To An Early Start


“When Kurt Cobain killed himself, 20 years ago this April 5, he became the sole top-level rock star ever to take his own life at the crest of his fame. The long list of other megawatt stars gone by his age — Jimi, Janis, Jim Morrison — fell by drug-related accidents. Or they were murdered, like Biggie and Tupac. But Cobain’s violent act put him into a sad club of one, a decision that adds a special chill and mystery to an already rare mythology.”
— Where were you when you heard that Kurt Cobain killed himself? If your answer involves some variation of “recess” or “playdate” I’m just gonna cry. Anyway, guess what you’re gonna see a lot of over the next few weeks?
