What Would Kurt Cobain Be Doing Today? Courtney Love Takes A Guess
Last year Courtney Love gave Mark Yarm, author of Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History Of Grunge a few ideas of what could have happened if Kurt Cobain hadn’t committed suicide on yesterday’s date in 1994.
“We’d probably live on the Upper West fuckin’ Side now and have three fuckin’ kids, we might even have a divorce, like both be on our third marriage. I don’t fuckin’ know. He might be a playwright, [or have] his latest show in MoMA.”
“I’d have a 16-year-old son and be his model wife. Given the money that is involved here we could probably have had a fuckin’ yacht. We could have gone open marriage at some point…I don’t fuckin’ know.”
I feel like Kurt would be in hiding by now, doing everything to ensure that he was no longer in the spotlight or involved in music. Most people agree that it was the stress of fame that killed him.
In other Cobain news, some never-before-seen paintings of his were dredged out by The Fix this week, drawn in 1993.
