    :( :(

    Anyone remember what they were doing when they heard about Kurt`s death?I heard the news at 4 o`clock pm that a body was found but they were`nt sure it was him then at 6 during a Eric`s Trip song on the college station the dj came on and announced it was Kurt.

    :( :( :(
    I’ve been sitting around that afternoon with some friends, playing cards and having MTV playing in the background, when they broke the news :(

    although I wasn’t much into Nirvana, it was very sobering for me, it felt like sorta the party was over. The years after, I didn’t follow the music scene like I did before.

    Yeah,the early `90s were a great time in indie rock and it seemed that after Kurt died things got kinda boring(though Nirvana were mainstream it was the underground scene they came out of),maybe just coincidence;sure,there`s good stuff happening these days but it`s not like it was 10 years ago,back then I could go into a record store and see a ton of great albums I wanted to get that were new,now there`s few things that I would want to get.The `80s underground scene was cool as well,I don`t know…it has`nt been a amazing last 10 years except for some stuff

    i was driving home from work when KROQ came on and said it was indeed the body of Cobain that was found…

    I was 20 at the time, and I remeber being devastated (of course, I was still not 100% clear from Meth (that came in May))… I was a HUGE Nirvana fan.. I seem to recall I shed a tear while alone in the car..
