I have said one of these before but it always felt like it was still too soon. One look at his greasy hair and tortured face, and the laugh just stifled and slowly faded out, like the dying cricket in my basement.
I am certain other people have made similar jokes, but whatever brought this back to my dome today, brought some friends with it.
A short, (you're welcome) very incomplete list of some things Kurt Cobain never got to say.
"I don't care you guys, I'm not doing a deodorant commercial."
"Dave, tell me again why are you hosting Chelsea Lately?"
"Wow, Michael Jackson. Didn't see that one coming."
"Courtney, you look really pretty in that dress."

There are so many more, but I really need to listen to Nevermind and sit and sip Pennyroyal Tea.
Could you imagine how sad it would be if he was still around but just really burned out and struggling for material?ReplyDelete
"Kurt Cobain Covers Your Favorite Christmas Songs - Part Two!"
I really canNOT imagine. The fact that he wrote that song and didn't even REALIZE it was actually a deodorant is everything about him I loved. I don't think anyone can maintain that level of notcaretiveness. It would have been devastating to me to see that happen, ala The Greatful Dead's hair dye deal "A Touch of Grey," I am not making that up.Delete
I'm of that older generation for whom John Lennon's death was a life-changing shock to the system, not Kurt Cobain's. But both left professional rock star widows.ReplyDelete
Yes, so you know. I tried to explain to my sister, a huge Beatles fan. I told her Nevermind is our white album. Then she kind of got it.Delete
It seems like a lot of the best musicians and most popular stars die young. It is almost like they die young in order to make their biographies more interesting and tragic!ReplyDelete
So true, from Elvis to Michael Jackson....it's a tough lifestyle.Delete
So sad that he was so tortured to end his life that way. Too many great entertainers die young. Who knows what more they could have done.ReplyDelete
A lot of the best.Delete
