    Kurt changed my life with his insightful and surreal music and lyrics. I only wished he could have stuck around to make more to listen to for future generations. I was compelled to compose a portrait of him In Memoriam recently on the anniversary of his death on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/04/in-memoriam-kurt-cobain-and-lane-staley.html Drop in and tell me your memories of his music and how it’s affected you.

    1. I liked your tribute.

      I liked your tribute. Just like older people say about President Kenedy and the first Moon landing, I remember exactly where I was when I heard the announcement of Kurt Cobain’s death.
