All Apologies

Posted: April 17, 2012 by aburroway in AdamB, Kurt Cobain--A Life's Story

Point of view from Tom Grant

April 5, 1994,

Kurt Cobain died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound

Or at least that’s what the officials say.

The scene I investigated was not a suicide,

It was murder.

Nothing adds up to suicide

The shotgun used, the angle of the wound,

The chemicals found in his body

He would’ve been unable to shoot any kind of gun

Or weapon.

But for right now

Let’s just remember him

The legend he was

And the impact he could’ve made

If he lasted just a few more years.

I will spend the rest of my life

To bring justice to Kurt Cobain

And bring closure to all of his fans.

*Tom Grant was a Private Investigator hired by Courtney Love to find Kurt after he checked out of rehab days before his death.

*Grant has since followed the Kurt Cobain Murder Theory and has published several books and other works about it.

March 4, 1994

Point of view from Courtney Love

Kurt’s in the hospital right now

In a coma

He overdosed on painkillers and champagne last night.

What an idiot!

So now we’re stuck here in Rome

On Nirvana’s European tour

But the rest is going to have to be canceled.

This may have been an accident

But I think he deserves it.

Maybe he’ll get a nice lesson out of this.

Probably not,

Kurt isn’t smart enough to figure that out.

All of this is so sudden

The fans, the cheers

I never expected any of this.

We shouldn’t be the biggest band in the world right now

That isn’t us.

We just released our third album

and planning a European Tour.


That’s out of the country.

We even have an acoustic gig with MTV

Later in the year.

How I even agreed to that,

I have no idea.

I love playing music

And writing music

It’s my life

But this fame is almost too much.

Surprise of the Century

Posted: April 17, 2012 by aburroway in AdamB, Kurt Cobain--A Life's Story

We’re shooting a video today

We’ve got this fake gym

With cameras seemingly everywhere you go

And there’s at least a hundred people

I don’t even know

Here as extras.

The guys at the label want to do this

They’re releasing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as a single.

I think it’ll flop.

The world isn’t ready for us

It’s a five minute song about nonsense

No one wants to hear that.

We’re being forced to do this

Cause we’re under contract.

Let’s just get this over with.

Makes Me Sick

Posted: April 17, 2012 by aburroway in AdamB, Kurt Cobain--A Life's Story

Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill

She’s a wonder isn’t she?

She understands me

And who I am

I get so sick around her

And sometimes the feeling is too much.

It’s like an anuerysm building inside

But it’s a good thing.

Everyone says I’m too obsessed with her

But I don’t think so.

Kathleen Hanna wrote “Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit”

On my wall.

She said it was about tobi,

But I didn’t understand.

That phrase means something

Something beyond the words.

It’s like an anthem waiting to take shape.

*Kurt dated Tobi Vail after his relationship with Tracy Marander fell apart.

*Teen Spirit is the brand of deodorant that Tobi wore.

*Kathleen Hanna was also a member of Bikini Kill.

About a Kurt

Posted: April 17, 2012 by aburroway in AdamB, Kurt Cobain--A Life's Story

Point of view from Tracy Marander

This becoming hard

I do all the work

And he does nothing.

He won’t get a job

He doesn’t even get dressed in the morning.

I love him,

But I can’t do this anymore

I’m tired of being the only one working.

I’m tired of having to steal food for us.

All he does is paint pictures

He paints everything.

He thinks he’s an artist or something

He’s talented, but being talented

Won’t get you anywhere in this world anymore.

He plays guitar too

And is in some kind of band

But whenever he plays around me

He keeps playing the same chords over and over

And mumbles stuff as if trying to write a song

But whatever,

I bet it’s not even about me.

* Kurt dated Tracy Marander for a while and lived with her in her apartment.

* The song “About a Girl” is about Kurt and Tracy’s relationship.
