A Look Back at Kurt Cobain Childhood
The late Kurt Cobain was a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and vocalist for the band Nirvana. He passed away on April 5, 1994, after being born on February 20, 1967. He played in the band Nirvana. He did start out in the singing business, though, when he was still a little kid.
Music History of Kurt Cobain from the Beginning
From the time he was a little kid, Kurt loved music. His first song was “Hey Jude,” which was first sung by Arlo Guthrie and later made famous by The Beatles.
Having trouble in the house
Early in Kurt’s life, things weren’t too hard, but as problems with his family grew, things got harder. To make matters worse, he got angry easily and often hurt people close to him because of it.
Nirvana’s Start and Early Difficulties
Following the end of his schooling, Kurt became more involved with music. He put together a band with his friends Chris Novoselic and Dave Grohl. Only four people showed up to see them at their very first show, which was in a small bar in Seattle, Washington. But they didn’t give up.
Making Nirvana happen
Kurt, his friends, and a record company would need to come up with a band name if they agreed to the deal. Why did they choose Nirvana? Because Kurt was interested in Buddhism there.
The Album of Blues
They didn’t get as much attention for their first album, “Bleach,” as they had planned. When “Nevermind” came out in 1991, they finally got to see the results of their hard work. When songs like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come as You Are” came out, they became huge hits, even bigger than Michael Jackson!
A Life for Kurt That Is Like a Craze
And then they had a daughter together, Frances Bean Cobain. Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain got married in 1992. Kurt started to show his darker sides as he became more famous. For example, he struggled with drugs and had an unusual outlook on life. He also didn’t feel satisfied with his fame.
Being sick and having trouble
After his show in Germany in 1994, Kurt got asthma and laryngitis many times. Then, after almost dying from an overdose in March, he went to rehab.
The dropping off
After Kurt got away from rehab on April 1, 1994, Courtney Love hired a private investigator on April 3, 1994. It was their job to find him. Kurt’s body was found in his home on April 8, 1994, which was very sad. He killed himself on purpose when he was 27 years old.
