    I think so . . . that kind of talent could have taken him anywhere. Sadly, we'll never know.

    He was talented that's for sure, but he would never have been associated with anything other than Nirvana.

    She probably would. I mean, this is the same woman who published her dead husband's diaries.

    Kurt was actually about to divorce her. Just weeks before his death, she asked one of her attorneys to find the "meanest, most vicious divorce lawyer" they could find. Makes you think, doesn't it?....

    Kurt must have been higher than the proverbial kite on some extra-pure grade of heroin when he married that bitch. I know that he was plagued by mental issues, along with his drug addiction, but NOBODY could be clinically depressed to the point that they'd propose marriage to a skanky whore like Courtney Love. It HAD to have been the dope. And believe me, I speak from experience...

    I'd like to believe the same thing. Someone as classless as Courtney Love should never have the privilege of marrying someone as gentle as Kurt.

    "Classless" is a perfect description of Courtney Love. "Crude" and "crass" also come to mind when I think of her. [Which, thank God, isn't very often!] As a female tigger, I hold the same aversion as the majority of women to using the "C" word [if you get my drift], but in Courtney's case... Well, if the shoe fits, and all that rot! And you're right about Kurt being such a gentle, trusting, misguided, loving soul. Let it suffice to say that, IMO, the wrong spouse definitely died in this instance. Courtney Love is a boil on the ass of Society.

    I've tried to like her; I really have. But every time I've started to think, "Maybe I should cut her some slack", she does something else to make me hate her even more.

    He wasn't good in a group, why would he be good on his own? Only reason he is remembered now is because he lost a fight with the business end of a shotgun

    Honestly you don't know who Dave Grohl is? Krist Novoselic left music so that isn't surprising but quite honestly Cobain was the least talented musician of the three.

    Other than Power Chords which any monkey can play Cobain admitted he only knew six or seven other chords. He was good at what he knew, he also had vision and could use what he knew not only effectively but also in novel ways; but so far as ability both Novoselic and Grohl were better musicians and quite honestly more knowledgable musicians.

    Look they all played out of tune admittedly. None of them knew how to properly tune a guitar. I do know that much. Who was the voice of the band? Kurt was. Its not like Alice And Chains. When Lane died, the cup was still half full. There were 2 voices to the group and Jerry Cantrell is still doing it without Lane. Well its been a couple years and the bass player passed away as well but Cantrell still sounds like Alice And Chains. You put those monkeys from Nirvana together and without Kurt what do you have? A completely different group with no voice and the ZING is missing.

    Cobain was the voice of Nirvana, no one disputes that. But he was also the poorest musician (and yes Grohl and novoselic both knew how to tune a guitar) of the group. Again I am not attempting to take any accolades away from Cobain I appreciate the contribution he made to the growth of music, it's not an insult to his contribution to acknowledge he wasn't as good a musician as the others in the group.

    Then why were they all and always out of tune? and it was not just Kurt. If you listened to 2 different or even 4 different live performances, none of them knew at the time how to tune up or down a half or a whole step. They always sounded different.

    Listen to the actual music my friend and tell me who is out of tune. It isn't Novoselic's Bass, it certainly isn't the drums lol. It's Cobain, and if you look closely you will find, especially when playing live, it's because Cobain is actually playing the wrong chord, or is playing the chord sloppily which has a muting effect.

    see what i mean I dont even know they're names, what they play, or what they are doing now... And most people don't...
