Kurt Cobain and Nirvana – my Music A to Z

Unfortunately, I did not get into Nirvana until a few months before that fateful day in April 1994. I usually resist the newest band that everyone is in to. But I finally succumbed to the greatness that was Nirvana – no pun intended. I bought all of their cds and had tickets to see them at Lollapalooza (when it still traveled from city to city) in the Summer of 1994, but that obviously never happened. To this day, I say that I don’t like any music post 1994 – when Kurt Cobain died. (That obviously isn’t completely true because I do like new music that my favorite bands put out.) I was very affected by Kurt’s death. I even had nightmares following his death involving me arguing with Courtney Love. My favorite Nirvana song is Lithium. When I was in Seattle for the U2 360 tour, I visited the Nirvana exhibit at the Experience Music Project and Kurt’s house.

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.

  2. I didn’t get into Nirvana till I moved to Washington State in 99/00. When Kurt died I was so heavily into the Grateful Dead that I actually said, ‘who?’ when told he had died.
