Kurt Cobain was known as American rock star and grunge musician. He is most famous for being the lead singer of the legendary grunge rock band, Nirvana. His life came to a tragic end when he committed suicide in 1994.

Fame

Background

Kurt Donald Cobain was born on February 20, 1967, in the little logging town of Aberdeen, Washington. As a young boy, Cobain was artistic and had an ear for music. He had a younger sister named Kim but the two were taken away from each other when their folks got separated. At age nine, Cobain went to live with his father who eventually remarried, which put more strain on their relationship.

Career

Starting in 1988, Cobain's melodic desire started pushing his career ahead. His band created the name Nirvana and released their first track "Love Buzz" on a little record label. In 1989 Nirvana released their first album collection, Bleach, which did not succeed in making a major connection with the music fan

As the band carried on, 1990 turned into a decisive year for Cobain and the remainder of Nirvana. They released their classic album, Nevermind which created a whole new genre of rock called Grunge Music and cemented the band’s place in music history.

Personal Life

Relationships

Cobain met female rocker Courtney Love at a Portland dance club in 1990. She was fronting her own band called Hole. In February 1992 Cobain and Love got married and had a little girl, Frances Bean.

The relationship was based on shaky ground, as both were drug addicts. At one point, social services took steps to remove their little girl after Love's Vanity Fair interview revealed that she confessed to shooting up heroin while watching Frances.

In 1993, the Seattle police needed to separate a brutal debate at the couple's home. The two were battling about Cobain's weapons at the house.

Suicide

On April 5, 1994, in the guest house behind his Seattle home, a 27-year-old Cobain ended it all. He set a shotgun into his mouth and discharged, slaughtering himself in a split second. He left a suicide note in which he tended to his numerous fans just as his better half and young girl. While his passing was formally led as a suicide, paranoid ideas and theories have flowed that Love may have had something to do with his demise. There have been conspiracy theories that Love had Cobain killed for financial reasons.
