Kurt Cobain, Musician, songwriter Died in 1994, at age 27, by suicide (gunshot to the head) Nirvana front man, exposed his vulnerable side in catchy, self-loathing lyrics. Loved the Beatles and drawing. Married to Courtney Love - and heroin.
"Well, you know, Kurt inspired me a lot. I definitely fell in love with a whole new sense of music after having played with him. He was a great guy. He was one of the sweetest, most gentle people I've ever met. It still amazes me the outreach of what that band accomplished... I think a lot of people consider - well, obviously - Kurt a hero and he was definitely an inspiration." -Dave Grohl
