Kurt Cobain Died 17 Years Ago Today

Kurt Cobain—lead singer of the band Nirvana—died seventeen years ago today, shocking his fans and providing a cultural watershed mark for a generation. Cobain’s Sun in Pisces showed him to be a deep spiritual seeker, always looking to the highest without necessarily paying much attention to the physical world. His Moon in Cancer also showed him to be an incredibly, fundamentally sensitive soul. The two in combination provide for a psychological makeup which is almost all emotion and spiritual openness, without a whole lot of shielding and protection from the world.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Kurt Cobain, the troubled but influential leader of grunge legend Nirvana took his own life 17 years ago Tuesday in his home in Seattle. He was 27 years old. Found by an electrician several days after the suicide, Cobain is survived by his flamboyant rocker wife Courtney Love and their pair’s young daughter Frances Bean.

“The fact is, I can’t fool you, any one of you. It simply isn’t fair to you or me,” Cobain wrote in the handwritten suicide note that was found near his body. “The worst crime I can think of would be to rip people off by faking it and pretending as if I’m having 100% fun.”

Nirvana only had three studio albums before Cobain died. The trio’s debut, “Bleach,” was released through the influential Seattle indie label Subpop in 1989, in what would be the dawn of the grunge era.

After the New York City art-punk group Sonic Youth was signed to Geffen in 1990, the band encouraged the major label to sign Nirvana. “Nevermind” was released in 1991 with new drummer Dave Grohl providing the punishing foundation for the loud-quiet-loud style of Cobain’s haunting arrangements, epitomized in their biggest hit, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” which topped the Billboard charts in January 1992.

What do you think—will we ever see the likes of Cobain again?
