The End of Nirvana

The End of Nirvana

Sometime in the fall of 1991, I heard Nirvana’s  Smells Like Teen Spirit.  The music hit me in the face like a brick. After one listen I was hooked.  I bought the CD almost immediately.  Nearly 20 years later the song still reminds me of some great days in college.

Today’s thought is about how 17 years ago today, Nirvana ended sadly with the suicide of the founder and lead singer Kurt Cobain.

“I haven’t felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing . . . for too many years now”. Kurt’s suicide note.

I disagree with Kurt’s decision of ending it all.

In Memory of Kurt Cobain, here are some of my favorites.

    Ah, good memories. I had a similar experience hearing Nirvana the first time. I was in a record shop in Copenhagen when I put on some headphones to demo the album. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing as I listened to track after amazing track. I thought I had found some secret Danish band until the store clerk told me they were out of America. nI love their acoustic stuff and have been listening to it a lot lately. Also, lots of bootleg recordings out there.
