More than 65 young people eventually followed their hero into death, committing "copycat" suicides.
Cobain's death was a sensational and strange tale that inspired passionate debates about suicide, the emptiness of the 90s generation, and the responsibilities of pop culture heroes.
Cobain, who died at the age of 27, was a brilliant and creative man who led an emotionally troubled life. He was a heroin user who reportedly committed suicide, leaving a young daughter and wife behind. Days before he died he had disappeared from an L.A. drug treatment center.
The book "Who Killed Kurt Cobain? The Mysterious Death of an Icon" does not answer the question posed by its title. But it does provide compelling reasons why the investigation into his death should be reopened.
The book relates biographical information about Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love; the events leading up to his death; information and insights gleaned from friends, relatives and people who had been in contact with the couple; and professional opinions from experts in various fields, including pathology and graphology.
Many people who knew Cobain do not believe that he killed himself. Either does Tom Grant, a private investigator hired by Courtney Love to find Cobain after he left the drug treatment center. Grant does not accept the verdict of suicide and has done everything in his power to convince the authorities to reopen the investigation into Cobain's death.Read more ›
After reading this book I am left feeling very disturbed that a terrible injustice has gone overlooked by today's media and society.
This book first gives the story of Kurt's life, his phenomenal success and his marriage to Courtney Love. Then in a verifiable and coherent manner lays down an excellent case that Kurt's death was not the obvious suicide as it was portrayed in the media. It points out many unreported or misreported facts that dispute the cut-and-dried suicide theory. It also provides more than enough proof to seriously question the character and motives of Courtney Love.
If you are at all interested in the facts about how Kurt died, and especially if you were affected personally by his words and music, I HIGHLY recommend it. The truth must come out.
The authors took nothing at face value when writing this book. Anytime someone claimed to have a degree, or that an incident happened, or the police were called, or that they said a certain thing, anything, the authors looked it up and verifyed whether it was true. If they couldn't verify it, they identify it as a claim. A lot of Courtney's official bio seems to be her wacky brand of lies and tirades, since the authors found many, many discrepancies in her statements, especially those to her biographer, Melissa Rossi.
Courtney is a fascinating woman, a spectacle, a force to be reckoned with. The authors remind us that no matter how much Courtney bashing goes on, we have to remember that our icon Kurt did love and trust her, and she was one of the few people he was close to.Read more ›
