Kurt Donald Cobain, an American singer, songwriter, musician and artist founded the famous rock band “Nirvana” with Krist Novoselic in 1985. He took the band to the heights that no one can imagine. The Beatles and their famous song, “Hey Jude” were an inspiration for him towards music.
He loved classic and punk rock from his childhood. On his 14th birthday he was gifted a guitar by his uncle. With this the music within him got expression. He was in Munich, Germany on a tour on 01 March, 1994 when Cobain was diagnosed with Bronchitis and Laryngitis. The next day he took a flight to seek medical treatment in Rome. His wife joined him there on the 3rd of March, 1994. The next morning he was found unconscious due to an overdose on a combination of champagne and Rohypnol. Five days later he was discharged from the hospital. According to his wife it was his first suicide attempt.
On 8 April, 1994, an electrician discovered Cobain’s body at his Lake Washington home. He was found with a shotgun pointing at his chin and his body had a very high concentration of heroin and traces of Valium. Reports state that he must have died around 5 April, 1994. He had left a letter for his imaginary childhood friend, Buddah. He left behind thousands of mourners.
There is a debate regarding his death to be a suicide. Many people think that he was murdered by his own wife and the letter was written by her. He died with the following words.
Thank you all from the pit of my burning, nauseous stomach for your letters and concern during the past years. I’m too much of an erratic, moody baby! I don’t have the passion anymore, and so remember, it’s better to burn out than to fade away.
Peace, love, empathy,
Frances and Courtney, I’ll be at your altar.
Please keep going Courtney, for Frances.
For her life, which will be so much happier without me.
I love you, I love you!
