It was 10 years ago today Kurt Cobain took his own life...
Everywhere you turn today you see it or hear it, and I must admit it sickens me.
It sickens me because we remember him on his day of death instead of his day of birth and because of that, most stories focus on his heroin use, depression and killing himself, instead of focusing on the music. That's all Kurt ever wanted was the focus to be on the music, not him and his personal life. The media focused on him instead (and still do). If they didn't, would it have changed things...who knows...I think some of the pressure came from the constant media attention. We should remember the music and his contribution to the music scene, but not so much his personal life. I think he would have wanted it that way...
Of course if you want to know what I was feeling 10 years ago about Kurt's death, you can read a poem I wrote then by clicking here.
Now that I got that off my chest, on to more upbeat news about the local music scene.
Not only do we have a big show this month to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Folk You!, but I am now prepared to announce that on Friday May 14th there will be a big bash at the Court Tavern to celebrate my birthday.
And who will be playing this bash? Glad you asked...
