Kurt Cobain? Who The Hell was He?
Ah, pop culture. We’re talking in Exploring Music about various music forms from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Dan, the resident older person in the class (He’s 64), just admitted that he wouldn’t know who the hell Kurt Cobain was if he hadn’t committed suicide. So I guess Cobain shouldn’t have been so tortured at his success – cause the people in this country that really had the cash (i.e. those who always have the bulk of the money – the ones who have had time to accumulate it) had no idea who the hell he was.
Until he killed himself – then they saw him in the obituary pages I suppose. Must have been an interesting obituary: Kurt Cobain: He was a loser that got some money, really was upset that he could have luxuries that others couldn’t, and instead of pursuing life to make money to give to others, he just offed himself – some people just have it rough.
