In an Independent interview, Frances Bean Cobain revealed that she had no memories of her father Kurt Cobain, or his mysterious death.
What are Frances’s first memories from her childhood?
“I think my first memory is being three, and we had a faux fur foam chair with a face on it. It was Cherry from Pee Wee’s Playhouse. I had an Elmo doll and I wrapped it in a blanket and I was playing baby. I was using the chair as a crib for the baby. That’s my first memory. I don’t have any memories of my dad. But that is the first memory of my whole life.”
In 2014, Frances Bean Cobain told Rolling Stone she wasn’t into Nirvana or the Grunge scene.
“I don’t really like Nirvana that much [grins]. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre [laughs]. The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in. But “Territorial Pissings” [on Nevermind] is a fucking great song. And “Dumb” [on In Utero] – I cry every time I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.”
