Kurt Cobain was right when he said “It’s better to burn out than to fade away” or maybe not. Maybe the afterlife is better maybe not.
Come to think of it, he was a creative genius but at the same time a young man with problems and perhaps the lack of will to deal with those problems. But 22 years on Kurt Cobain and Nirvana still lives on. The fire that the 1991 album Nevermind started is still burning while the world of music is rapidly being consumed by hip-hop and electronic music. If you are a Nirvana fan and an admirer of Kurt Cobain’s creative genius, I suggest you watch this video over the film ‘Cobain: Montage of Heck’ which will only scar the memory or the process of introduction to Kurt Cobain.
The thought of ‘Burning out than fading away’ will mess your mind. I am not sure if the shine would have stayed if Kurt was alive, given his self-destructive tendencies. Or it was that burning that keeps him alive even today. But looking at the brighter side Foo Fighters – Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and even Krist Novoselic would be so proud to see this and relive.
Rockin’ 1000 is doing a great job in reviving and keeping the golden era of music alive. Watch and enjoy! And do tell us what you feel.
You can still read the full text of the sad Suicide Note which marked the end of an era and the legend Kurt Cobain.
Wonder what music would have been today had he been alive or would he too have been disrespected like Metallica at the 59th Grammy Awards. If not a lot, grunge music might have been alive with its brand ambassador, a creative genius, a prodigy, the most talented 27-year-old the world of music lost.
