    Kurt Cobain

    Died 30 years ago today (4/5/94). I remember where I was when I heard the news.

    I have always thought he'd have made an interesting pivot from grunge. His influences just seemed too deep.

    KEXP has been doing a series going through his top 50 list of albums. I was pretty sceptical of it, but it's been strongly good and filled in some interesting gaps. https://www.kexp.org/cobain50/

    We lost so much when we lost him.

    Definitely remember his death. I’d recently moved from Seattle to San Diego. It was a tough move to make, the PNW seemed like the center of the cultural universe and I somehow had fallen in to the middle of it. First time I saw Nirvana there were 5 bands on the lineup in a small art gallery & they were the first or second band. Chad was the drummer back then. Later on if Kurt was at a party or whatever he was always back in some room with the cool people but that early show he was just milling around with the 50 or so people there. Wish I’d talked to him.

    The genX John Lennon. RIP.

    Well, You did arrive in SD at the correct time as the music scene was damn good then although maybe was fizzling out by then.
