It's been 15 years since this 27 year old Seattle musician left the scene by his own hand. I passed this black and white poster of Nirvana band member Kurt Cobain displayed in the first floor apartment window of an Uptown building. He's staring at us from the other side. February 20th is Cobain's birthday, and 28 years ago today he received his first guitar as a birthday gift from his uncle. There will be remembrances and parties here in Seattle and even this one in Russia. Were you into the Seattle sounds of the 90s? My daughter was just a baby during that era but can play a cool version of Smells Like Teen Spirit on her guitar none the less.
