marksman: Didn't they say the handwriting on the note in his wallet match the handwriting on the suicide note?


That's what I thought too.

She's still the car wreck we still crane our necks for.  She's still the troll the media still loves to feed.  Because she's supposed to be a "feminist" or the antiMadonna or just never boring.

At the end of the day, doesn't she still have better marketable skills than any "reality" star?

I believe El Duce.

It's hardly a coincidence that he died mere days after saying that, either.

Keith Dudemeister: DubyaHater: This idiot blew his brains out 20 years ago because he was becoming too mainstream. Lets honor his final wish and allow his to rest in obscurity. His foul, heroin-addicted widow should be laying next to him.

You sound like an angry person.


Sounds like he's mad that someone who didn't want to succeed is more successful than he will ever be.

ModernPrimitive01: JeffDenver: devilEther: JeffDenver: Everyone is always so quick to Vilify Courtney Love. What the hell has she ever done to you?

She murdered Kurdt Cobain.

LOL - Someone on Fark made the accusation, so it must be true.

well they were right about Glenn Beck in the early 90s


Allegedly.

Successful is a tricky thing to define.  In terms of NOT COMMITTING SUICIDE he wasn't successful at all.  By most measures, he wasn't successful.  He was a successful musician for a few (less than five) years.  Lots of non-fans will say he wasn't a 'real musician' or whatever, but hey, he was popular, he defined a generation.  He was like a less popular Justin Bieber, with a shorter mainstream career.

He wasn't successful in school.  He couldn't hold down a job.  He was a criminal (whether or not that is a bad thing depends on how you feel about drug laws, but he certainly broke plenty of serious laws).  Even as far as drug users go, he was pretty unsuccessful at *using* drugs.  There are plenty of drug users who use without ending up in the hospital.  He was also unsuccessful at rehab.

I don't know the guy.  I've got nothing against him.  He played guitar and wrote some songs that people liked.  He was famous and, while I haven't Googled to check, I presume rich.  But I wouldn't call him successful.  I wouldn't wish for his life.  HE wouldn't wish for his life.  He's pretty much the opposite of what I'd consider successful.

rzrwiresunrise: Wait, why are Cobain and Love relevant 20 years later?


Their target audience generation recently became financially secure

I didn't know that there was any question that she wrote the note.

Given their rocky relationship and messy struggles with addictions, I saw the note and simply thought that he kept it as a sentimental keepsake - I can envision them having a terrible fight and her passively leaving him that note somewhere he'd find it as her way of apologizing.

People thought otherwise?

Hi, insecure Nirvana generation, I like these threads, i get to post this oi59.tinypic.com
/Nirvana, next big thing, just a (pretty good) band

I didn't see any proof one way or another.  How in the world would that guy know who wrote it?   Real evidence would be either:

a) Courtney herself admitting to authorship
b) handwriting analysis.

I don't get all the hand-wringing over a rocker that was pretty good, but hardly an Eddie Vedder.  Had he not eaten a bullet, the band (and him) would have faded away by 2000, just like almost every other grunge band in the 90s, and reunited around 10 years later when the money runs out (just like a lot of other 90s grunge bands).

"If it was murder rather than suicide does that mean we're now allowed to dislike Nirvana?"
