Krist Novoselic Posts Sad Kurt Cobain Birthday Photo


Krist Novoselic, the founding member, and bassist for the legendary grunge band Nirvana recently took to social media via Twitter to celebrate what would have been the fifty-fifth birthday of the group’s late frontman Kurt Cobain. Novoselic posted a beautiful drawing of Cobain’s likeness with the caption: “Happy birthday, Kurt! – missing you every single day!” Kurt Cobain’s daughter recently revealed this Kurt Cobain photo.

Cobain was found dead in his Seattle home on April 8, 1994, after dying from a gunshot wound to the head on April 5 and left behind his daughter – Frances Bean along with his wife, Courtney Love. There is no denying the legacy that Nirvana has had on not only grunge & rock but with music as a whole. Since the band’s debut, the group would go on to sell 27.6 million albums in the United States alone and million records worldwide. Nirvana entered the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

Novoselic was interviewed back in 2011 by Bass World Magazine discussing the legacy of Nirvana and reflected on the band.

“We were a collaboration: Dave [Grohl, drums, now of the Foo Fighters] and Kurt had to like the bass parts, too. So it’s all great. They came together really well. I still approach bass playing with the idea of, ‘What does the song need?’ Like, if it’s a heavy, dark, grinding song, or a pop song that needs some melody, or whatever.

Novoselic would continue to say: “I was really fortunate that I got to work with Kurt: he was such a talented songwriter and he had a real ear for a hook, so as far as I was concerned playing bass with him was super-easy.

In addition, when ask if he has any hesitations listening to his old recordings, the acclaimed bassist stated: “Oh, I’m happy with them, there’s no cringing there at all.” Credit to GuitarWorld for the following quotes.
