We’re remembering Kurt Cobain on his birthday – born on February 20th, 1967 – the Nirvana frontman had undeniable influence on music today. RadioX UK put together a list of 15 things you may not know about Kurt. Check out the full list here!
- Kurt started singing at the age of two. By the age of four, he’d written a song about a trip to the park
- Kurt has a sister. Kimberly is three years younger, born on 24 April 1970
- 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
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”
The first gig Kurt went to was a terrible hair metal band. Although he later went around claiming that his first concert was the cult favourites The Melvins or punk legends Black Flag, several friends say Kurt’s first gig was actually poodle rocker Sammy Hagar and his band Quarterflash at the Seattle Center Coliseum in March 1983
