A to Z 2014 : KURT

(An A to Z 2014 Challenge Entry)


I’ve always been a fan of Nirvana, but never a fanatical one. Some songs I really enjoy, others I could take it or leave it. Part of me wonders how long they would have lived on. Would they have died off over time like most? This documentary seems to claim that the band was already on the outs. I never followed along with this in the headlines at the time. I heard the various rumors and hypothesis throughout the years, but never looked into it beyond that.

If anything is certain, it’s that a talent was taken away too soon. Whether Nirvana — as a band — would have survived, had this tragedy not occurred, is inconsequential. Kurt Cobain would have continued on.

As for the movie? I think the trailer is really well done. I’m a sucker for true crime documentaries as it is. I’m looking forward to checking this out when it’s released.

Are you a Nirvana fan? How do you think the movie looks? Any thoughts or opinions on the topic of Kurt Cobain’s passing?
