Teenager wants to tell you how good Kurt Cobain was

AN awestruck 15-year-old is breathlessly telling everyone how incredible Kurt Cobain was and what a terrible loss his death was. 

Tom Logan, who first discovered the music of Nirvana three months ago and has since watched two documentaries and read one graphic novel about their frontman urgently needs the world to understand Cobain’s genius.

He said: “A lot of people, especially if they’re in their 40s, might never have heard of a band like Nirvana because they grew up with the Beatles or Elvis or whoever.

“But if they heard something like Nevermind it would totally blow them away. It’s so raw and real. It actually launched a whole movement called grunge. That’s how influential it was.

“Probably they don’t know that Cobain committed suicide, or if they did know once they’ve forgotten, which is actually one of the reasons I’m fascinated with him.

“Little known fact: Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the Foo Fighters, was actually Nirvana’s drummer! Bet that surprised you.”

Teacher Helen Archer said: “I now realise what I was like when I discovered Jim Morrison in 1991, and I am profoundly sorry.”
