THIRTEEN YEARS AGO

As near as anyone can figure it, Thursday is the 13th anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain, leader of Nirvana. Cobain was found dead on April 8, but officials believe he shot himself on April 5, 1994. No more sweet little Pisces man.

This weekend, several local bands will gather for "In Bloom: A Tribute to Kurt Cobain" at The Outland and the Outland Ballroom. Pillbox is getting back together for the gig -- reason enough to show up. Until then, time to listen to "Floyd The Barber" and "Negative Creep."

Anon 342: Weren't that good? Were they good? Can't make up your mind?

Go listen to Nevermind. The band was legendary before Cobain ate the shotgun.

As for Bleach: The cover of "Love Buzz" is a keeper.

Even today, Nirvana never sounds old. If that's not legendary, I don't know what is :)

Ron,

Sunday April 8th is what I have on the calendar. The soccer crowd are fans...

Your argument that "they weren't that good" is basically that their first album wasn't all that good?? Sheesh. They managed to change nearly everything with their next two, so we can let "Bleach" slide. Yeah, the suicide thing plays a role but we're not talking about James Dean here.
