27 years ago the Nirvana vocalist died and with that he left a large fan base that still mourns his death, but what was the last thing he said … here we tell you what the letter left by Kurt Cobain said.
The death of the artist originally from Aberdeen, Washington, remains one of the greatest losses of young artists, as he died at the age of 27.
However, the guitarist also left a strong influence on the generations of musicians who succeeded him.
Kurt Cobain was found dead in the greenhouse of his home in SeattleOn April 8, 1994, however, he had died 3 days earlier, on April 5.
The musician’s body was found by an electrician who had come to install a security system and who notified the police.
Before that, he had dropped out of a rehab center in Los Angeles. People say that Kurt flew from Los Angeles to Seattle and was in town wandering around until he secluded himself at home..
Sometime on April 5, he locked himself in his greenhouse, locked the doors, and left a farewell letter. Kurt’s body was found with a shotgun on his chest and forensics could only recognize his identity from his fingerprints.
What said the letter that Kurt Cobain left when he died 27 years ago.
Despite having been married to Courtney Love and having a daughter together, Frances Bean Cobain, the letter Kurt left was for Boddah, his longtime imaginary friend:
“Speaking like the experienced fool who would rather be a neutered childish charlatan. This note should be pretty easy to understand. Everything that I was taught in the punk rock courses that I have been following over the years, since my first contact with the, let’s say, ethics of independence and the connection with my environment has turned out to be true. It’s been too long since I’ve been excited by listening to or creating music, or writing it, or even doing rock’n’roll. I feel incredibly guilty. For example, when the lights go out before the concert and the screams of the audience are heard, they do not affect me the way they affected Freddy Mercury, who seemed to love that the public loved and adored him. Which I admire and envy very much. In fact, I can’t fool any of you. It just wouldn’t be fair to me. Pretending that I am having a 100% good time would be the worst crime I could imagine. Sometimes I have the feeling that I would have to sign in before going on stage. I’ve tried everything to stop that happen. (And I keep trying, believe me God, but it’s not enough.)
I am aware that I, we, have influenced and liked many people. I must be one of those narcissists who only appreciate things when they have already happened. I am too simple. I need to be a little anesthetized to regain the enthusiasm I had when I was a kid. In our last three tours I have appreciated much more all the people that I have personally met who are our fans, but despite that I cannot overcome the frustration, guilt and hypersensitivity towards people. There is only good in me, and I think I just love people too much. So much so that it makes me feel fucking sad. The typical sad, sensitive, dissatisfied Pisces, my God! Why I can not enjoy? I do not know! I have a divine woman, full of ambition and understanding, and a daughter who reminds me a lot of how I had been.
Full of love and joy, she trusts everyone because for her everyone is good and she believes that they will not harm her. That scares me so much that it almost immobilizes me. I can’t bear the thought of Frances turning into a sinister, miserable, self-destructive rocker like I’ve become. I have everything, everything. And I appreciate it, but since I was seven I hate people in general… Just because it seems like people find it easy to relate and be understanding. Comprehensive! Just because I love and feel too sorry for people. Thank you all from the bottom of my nauseating stomach for your letters and your interest over the last few years. I am a fickle and lunatic creature. My passion has run out, and remember that it is better to burn out than to fade out slowly. Peace, love and understanding. Kurt Cobain.
Frances and Courtney, I’ll be at your altar.
Please, Courtney, go ahead for Frances, for her life that will be so much happier without me. I love. I love!
