In a new Kerrang interview, founding Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic was asked how he coped with Kurt Cobain’s 1994 death.
“That’s a good question. I took a long time. It was so traumatic. I was depressed from it. It had terrible effects. I had other things in my life at that point that held me back, too. But in the end, time healed it and you end up dealing with it. Then, eventually, you come to terms with things… but I don’t know, really. You just have to try to be positive.”
He also discussed why Nirvana has
“It’s the melodies and the hooks. There’s also the power and the diversity. We didn’t just beat one idea over the head. I was listening to [In Utero song] Milk It the other day. That is a really sinister song. Actually, ‘menacing’ is a better word, but there’s a lot to capture the imagination in different ways. Kurt was also so intense and it all came together on the records. That song is a good example of that intensity and because there’s no video for it, it’s all about the imagination.”
