Kurt Cobain heroin fix kit

This was Kurt Cobain heroin kit used to feed his $400 a day habit.

Seriously, I wonder how much Kurt Cobain heroin kit (paraphernalia) would worth if his cardigan price tag is $140K? His heroin shooting kit would certainly be a success at a collector auction.

Kurt Cobain self portrait

It was the way Kurt Cobain viewed himself.

Kurt Cobain self portrait.

Personally, I found it really beautiful and original.

If they can sell a Kurt Cobain cardigan $140,000
I wonder how much they can sell this painting?

I would like to have a Kurt Cobain's original on my wall.

Kurt Cobain decided to leave Nirvana in 1992

Dear David Geffen,

Hi my name is Kurt Cobain, Im the lead singer, guitar, and songwriter for the band NIRVANA. Supposedly, I've made your company a lot of money. Oh well, it never was a goal of mine to be part of the mainstream corporate world, but once I entered it I realized that there are other employees especially at DGC who are as honest and sincere about music and have basically the same values as I have. I've never met you I guess because Ive never wanted to. Kind of a big boss phobia of mine but something so severely defremating [sic] towards my family has come up in an article in Vanity Fair that has forced me to decide on breaking up my band. The article suggests that Courtney and I have been taking heroin continuously throughout her pregnancy which is not true. Courtney found out she was pregnant within the first month of our drug binge. She stopped using and has since been visiting Danny Goldberg's pediatrician on a regular basis. The doctors prognosis is that our child is in excellent health and theres no need to worry about anything. But this article has outright accused my wife of all kinds of hideously vile things to the point where Ive never seen such a crucifixion in a magazine. The woman's entire objective was to harm Courtney and now after you read the article (I hope) something may be done about it. You may not even be aware that Courtney's band Hole is also on DGC. They are a very important band to be heard especially my wife's openness and embrace of women's rights and homosexuality. This person who wrote the article Lynn Hirschberg must have her karma broken. Some way. Its either her or me. I love my wife and soon to be new daughter too much to let everyones low opinions of us ruin our lives together. I am now in rehab going on 18 days and Im really looking forward to having a family at this point fuck NIRVANA. Ive never admitted to using drugs in articles because I don't want my fans to do the same. We are capable of displaying a healthy attitude before our audience and the next record is easily as good as the last one, but Im so extremely pissed off about this piece of trash journalism that I'll lay anything on the line for the love of my wife and daughter.

Sincerely Kurt Cobain."

Obviously Kurt Cobain never left Nirvana since he died in April 5, 1994 and the above letter was written in 1992.

Was it another self-destructive / self-sabotage attempt or just a way to get the head of Lynn Hirschberg?

Kurt Cobain & Manowar

In the last interview he granted before committing suicide, Kurt Cobain said that “Nirvana will never be even a tenth as good as Manowar, and I have a very hard time living with that fact.”

The whole thing, photo and article, is a silly joke about Manowar from Axl Rosenberg of But seeing Kurt Cobain "wearing" a very cool Manowar shirt under his distressed wool sweater was too much to not put it here. And imagining him as a die-hard fan was even better.

The Last Photo of Kurt Cobain Alive – March 24, 1994

The man in the photo with Kurt Cobain is Thor Lindsay, who was the executive producer of the Kurt Cobain/William S. Burroughs 1993 single “The Priest They Called Him”.

Kurt Cobain
(February 20, 1967 - April 5, 1994)

FYI William S. Burroughs was the oldest junkie alive when he was... alive!?

Here is the single:

I know this sucks!

The world's oldest junkie William S. Burroughs also starred in the much better Ministry - Just One Fix. 

An excellent song!
