Kurt Cobain is still leaving a lasting legacy even years after his untimely death 20 years ago. But his final actions have also spurred a lot of controversy over time and now Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, who was one of the last people to see Cobain alive, claims he did not think Kurt seemed like he was going to die, yet at the same time it did not surprise him, either.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Kurt Cobain’s net worth is in the millions and his estate is estimated at around $450 million. Lana Del Ray stirred up a lot of controversy when she wrote that Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse were her inspirations and she even said, “I wish I was dead already.” Needless to say, Frances Bean Cobain, was not exactly pleased to hear such comments so she wrote on Twitter:
“The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize… I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it’s ‘cool. Well, it’s f**king not. Embrace life, because you only get one life.”
Now if you check out the interview video with Duff McKagan this is what he had to say about Kurt’s final days:
“I was really f***ed up. I mean, I wrote about it in my book, It was, like, 87 words. We were both f***ed up. It wouldn’t have been a big deal… It was something, like, even at that time… we were just two f***ed up guys, but we were both in big bands and we landed at the airport and we kind of talked about… I mean, my pancreas blew up four weeks later. He died two days later. So that’s where we were both at at our lives — at the end of our ropes. I didn’t have a sense that he was gonna die in two days, but again, a lot of my friends and peers were dying, or had died, and I was getting numb to it, getting used to it. And even when I got a call that he died, I didn’t fall out of my chair. It just happened. And I was too fucked up to really take it in. I was, like, ‘Oh, another one fell.'”
Kurt’s last words to Courtney Love were also recently released by police and they revealed a reality that was full of despair:
“Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife even when she’s a b***h with zits and siphoning all [yr] money for doping and whoring?”
This note stood in stark contrast to the original suicide note that read:
“I have a goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy and a daughter who reminds me too much of what I used to be, full of love and joy, kissing every person she meets because everyone is good and will do her no harm. And that terrifies me to the point to where I can barely function. I can’t stand the thought of Frances becoming the miserable, self-destructive death rocker that I’ve become.”
