Kurt Cobain

The conspiracy theories that Kurt Cobain was murdered as opposed to suicide have gone on for almost exactly two decades now, and following yesterday's news that his case was possibly being reexamined, it appears the case is officially closed. The NY Times reports:

Though his death was ruled a suicide some refused to believe that, leading to conspiracy theories that Cobain had been killed.

In a statement on the Seattle Police Department's online blotter, the detective who re-examined the case dismissed that speculation.

"Sometimes people believe what they read_some of the disinformation from some of the books, that this was a conspiracy. That's completely inaccurate," said Detective Mike Ciesynski, who found the four rolls of undeveloped crime scene photos. "It's a suicide. This is a closed case."

In other Nirvana news, there's a campaign set up to turn Kurt's childhood home into a museum; Bleach-era drummer Chad Channing is not getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Kurt, Krist and Dave; they're releasing a Record Store Day 7", and Sivu covered "Dumb."

There were warning signs for years he was manic depressive. An early Nirvana tour had him breaking down during a gig. Who knows what friends did behind the scenes to help but the end result is sad. Avoidable? quite possibly.

Axl was right about this dude. Junkie music, junkie life. Predictable end.

I'd rather be dead than be Axl Rose.

Should have been a closed case almost 20 years ago. Anyone who ever tried to act like/pretend/or actually believe that Kurt Cobain was murdered just needed some pointless melodrama to detract from their vapid, boring souls.

Good question 10:04. Maybe now that Courtney Love is a master detective, she can solve that case.

Before that dude from The Pita Pit decided to let us know what punk is, that was Kurt's job.

Just 2 questions:

1) Why were there two brands of cigarettes in the ashtray? One was Kurt's with his fingerprints. The other was a different brand with no fingerprints.

2) Why were there no prints on the shotgun shells when Kurt wasn't wearing gloves when he killed himself?

I think you need to write to Oliver Stone with your theory. But remember to line the envelope with tin foil, those scanners can pick up anything nowadays.

If Courtney married the singer of Arcade Fire would he blow his head off too?

The real deal: Kurt ate tainted hummus which caused a psychotic reaction and lead him to blow his brains out. Truth.

Take a look around you! KMart, wal-mart, forever 21 etc. if Courtney cared at all about Kurt she would not have his face on a shirt in every store you go to. I like Nirvana and even hole. But she didn't write any of live through this or celebrity skin. No talent! It's not cool to cash in on the death of your so called love ones.
