    Kurt Cobain

    I remember watching the thing on VH1 about Kurt Cobain. It was a half hour long special thingamabob. Anywho, it said that Kurt found a dead man who had hanged himself, and that it made Kurt paranoid for the rest of his life and stuff. I've read a couple of books on Kurt Cobain and I'd never heard that, did anyone else know about that incident?

    Why do people assume things they read in newspapers and see on TV are correct? I don't get it. From my experience they are wrong very often.

    I've heard that some people think that Kurt was murdered and did not kill himself. It would be weird if all of a sudden they found out this was true. If it was true, I would find the dude's grave and blow it up with explosives. I think it WAS suicide though.

    Those people are morons. They're the same idiots that think
    Elvis is still alive. Cobain drank a rootbeer, smoked a cigarette,
    wrote his suicide note, loaded up on heroin, put a shotgun in
    his mouth, and pulled the trigger (maybe not in that order, but
    close enough).

    Courntey Love still has a piece of his skull (with the hair attached).

    Ironically, im listening to nirvana rite now lol.
    But Cobain never wrote about race cars... Or clubbin'...

    I didn't see that special on VH1 but I do remember when he died. It was huge, I mean the guy was so popular people started wearing all these Kurt Cobain t-shirts and stuff. The guy was a drug addict and that's why I think he was so paranoid. He used alot of cocaine also, and cocaine makes you go into states of extreme paranoia when you use it. If you're addicted to cocaine and have as much money as Kurt did then yes you will end up dead before you know it. Sucks

    I think ethic's and sourcecode's ideas are probably right on track. although I read 'who killed kurt cobain' and that book offered some *almost* convincing evidence that he didnt' kill himself, but ultimately he committed suicide.

    i read that there was no way he killed himself, and the evidence was from the police report. like with the amount of heroin he shot up there was no way he could have picked up a shotgun and shot himself. he was injected with enough to pass out or something. and everything around the area was very neat, as though someone cleaned it up or something. ill have to see if i can find it again. but they had scans of the police report, and after reading that, i highly doubt that he killed himself.
