Today, February 20, 2014, would have been Kurt Cobain’s 47th birthday. This day also marks the first annual “Kurt Cobain Day” that will be celebrated in his hometown of Aberdeen, Washington.
Although Kurt mockingly described Aberdeen as “Twin Peaks without the excitement,” and there were years of discomfort over Cobain’s admitted drug use, the city is now embracing Kurt Cobain and acknowledging Nirvana’s accomplishments.
The Aberdeen Museum of History will host the days celebrations and they will add a statue by Randi Hubbard to the museum’s existing Kurt Cobain and Nirvana exhibit.

Some of you may have read a story in a UK publication, about the 1992 Reading Festival show being released on DVD in May. This is not true! Save your hard earned cash! This is an illegal bootleg, not produced from the original masters, or sanctioned by the band/estate.
The official Nirvana ‘Live At Reading’ DVD (to be announced in a future posting) will include restored video with pristine visual quality, re-mastered audio from the original audio masters in TRUE 5.1 surround sound, and a wealth of exclusive bonus features.
We will deliver you a package worthy of this landmark concert that will put any inferior bootlegs to shame. Well worth the wait! Stay tuned for more official updates.

He haunted Seattle’s music scene, withdrawing into its grit and grime. He thought some of it made sense, but most of it didn’t. So he turned to the only thing he knew for sure: his music. Soon it became clear; the inspired songwriter with scruffy hair and stormy eyes had taken the underground grunge movement mainstream. Converse invokes Kurt Cobains spirit with these Kurt Cobain Black Chuck Taylore All Star Converse. These shoes feature a canvas upper with lyrics from “Come As You Are” and “Dumb”.
