  1. Kurt started singing at the age of two. By the age of four, he’d written a song about a trip to the park
  2. Kurt has a sister. Kimberly is three years younger, born on 24 April 1970
  3. Kurt was arrested a couple of times as a teenager. The first was for spraying graffiti on the wall of a bank in 1985, including the immortal phrase:”Ain’T goT no how waTchamacalliT”. The second was for walking across a roof “while intoxicated” in May 1986
  4. Kurt worked for a period as a swimming instructor for pre-school kids. Cobain’s journals also revealed that his CV consisted of very little: “maintenance, basic odd jobs, carpet cleaning”
