Some Bass Playing Guy: GAT_00: As opposed to Lennon, who by his own words regularly beat the women he was with.Comparing Cobain to Lennon is an insult to Cobain.Both of you should try not being dicks.The comparison of Lennon and Cobain isn't a bad one. Both of them were iconic figures that many fans held in higher esteem than most other popular artists. As far as talent is concerned, that's totally subjective. It's also entirely likely that people who have more respect forsomeone from their own generation or closer to their own generation.Some of us, however, can see past the bullshiat to realize that both Lennon and Cobain are deserving of respect. Lennon and the Beatles were influential and changed the course of popular music. Cobain and Nirvana did the same. They can be equally criticized for the problems they had in their personal lives. In then end, they had faults, just like everyone else.But yeah, let's turn this thread into a dick waving contest. That's always the best choice.

Lsherm: FirstNationalBastard: And, like Lennon, dying young made him into more of a legend than if he had lived.Unlike Lennon, Cobain benefitted disproportionately compared to his level of talent. Nirvana had one great album, one middling album, and one album no one listened to until after he offed himself.Kurt Cobain was good at feeling sorry for himself and doing drugs to feel better. Then he had a kid and instead of getting help he shot himself and left her to Courtney Love, which is just about the most despicable thing you can do to a child.
rooftop235: [encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 183x275]The lyrics to ICP's "Terrible" come to mind.The whole world was crying when Kurt's gun went BANG!When Eazy-E died though, it wasn't no thangRapper dies of A.I.D.S. but you hardly mentionRocker blows his face off and becomes a legendHeroin and a shotgun, a hero is madeMaybe I should do that shiat so J can get paid
genepool lifeboat: whole in the head...
Lunchlady: Kurt Cobain shooting himself was the best thing he did for Nirvana.If he was still alive he would be at Axel Rose levels of sad and pathetic.

Bedstead Polisher: A friend called that told me. When I picked up the phone and heard her voice I thought it was nice that she remembered my birthday, but she hadn't.

vernonFL: MaxxLarge: I was in college. Kurt Loder told me, on MTV News.JESUS, I'm old.Me too. Jerry Garcia died when I was in college too.
Generation_D: I was sitting in my apt a block off Broadway Ave in Seattle, using the internet to my school's dialup.Heard about it on IRC.Went outside, up to Broadway Ave, and found about double the normal amount of sullen sad suburban teens walking around looking lost, wearing their best flannel.A few days later I overheard two teen girls say outloud that they hoped they could find "a Kurt Cobain sweater" at the Buffalo Exchange clothes store.
