Nirvana Icon Breaks Silence On Kurt Cobain Murder Accusation


Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, who is generally silent about Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy theories, responded to them directly in a new Nirvana Reddit AMA. You can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

If you knew Kurt was listening what would you say to him?

“I would tell him that I loved him and miss him. I would also ask him why he chose to kill himself. He had a lot to live for. Now, here is something I want to get off my chest: I can’t believe people think that I would confess to them being part of a criminal conspiracy, especially on line.

Also, I beg anyone who thinks they have any real evidence of foul play to go to the police. Finally, one of the reasons I am convinced Kurt killed himself is that he purchased a .20 shotgun. Kurt was not interested in hunting birds or squirrels, he bought that firearm as a suicide device. Suicide is not rational.”

Hello Krist!!! Thank you so so much for doing this, I cannot believe I’m getting the chance to talk to you even for a few questions!!! First I have to congratulate you on your new album with the Giants!! I narrowed my questions down to these: If you could change something in how Kurt is remembered what would it be?

Which songs mean the most to you (why?)

Did Kurt really write most lyrics for Bleach and Nevermind last moment before recording?

And how often and for how long did you guys usually rehearse?

Again thank you so much I can’t physically describe how much you all and what you did means to me!!! Have a nice day Krist!

“Kurt would wait until the end a lot to get lyrics done. We would play for a few hours. IF there was a show coming up, we would dust off the songs, but many times we just jammed and made things up on the spot. Things like ‘Oh the Guilt’ and ‘Curmudgeon’ were basically improvisations. There was a good recording setup there next to a washer and dryer. We were lucky it was caught or certainly be lost to history.”
