Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana anniversary is here, and former bandmate Dave Grohl has taken a moment out to remember the last words the two shared.
Nirvana was a band that shot to the top of the music charts back in the early 90s with such hit albums as Nevermind and In Utero with its sound which may have been the launching point for Seattle’s grunge movement. Kurt Cobain’s success was quickly gained, and after his ensuing death (nobody seems to know for sure if it was suicide or a clever murder), his memory was forever immortalized by the music he left in his wake.
Dave Grohl took up the torch after the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain by starting up the band we know as Foo Fighters, taking a somewhat more positive approach to music. Of course in the process of their success, the former Nirvana bandmate wrote and performed the hit single “My Hero” as a tribute to his fallen fellow musician.
Kurt Cobain’s 20th Nirvana anniversary was celebrated by the sale of his childhood house, as previously reported by The Inquisitr, but Dave Grohl has taken the memory a step further. He recalled for Loudwire his last memories of Kurt Cobain:
“Living with Kurt was funny. He isolated himself in a lot of ways, emotionally. But he had a genuine, sweet nature. He never intentionally made you feel uncomfortable. Living with him in that tiny apartment in Olympia, Washington, there was some sort of bond. But it was much different than his relationship with Krist.”
Toward the end, Kurt Cobain had already had a close call when he overdosed in Rome, when Dave Grohl blankly told him that was scary and he didn’t want the Nirvana frontman to die.
Dave Grohl says the last time he spoke with Kurt Cobain, he was heading into the band’s accounting office as Cobain was walking out. Kurt smiled at him and said, “Hey, what’s up?”
Dave Grohl replied, “I’ll give you a call,” and Kurt Cobain agreed to it.
That was how Dave Grohl decided to celebrate Kurt Cobain’s Nirvana anniversary, recalling the last words they spoke to each other. Rest in peace, rock legend Kurt Cobain.
