21 years ago the end of Nirvana

In my late teens and early twenties Seattle's grunge scene was becoming quite popular on rock radio, MTV(yes they once played music) and among my friends. One of the most popular of these groups was Nirvana.

Nirvana ended 21 years ago today when the frontman, singer, songwriter, guitarist for the band blew his mind out with a shotgun joining the infamous 27 Club. I describe his death rather bluntly. There music was blunt, it was rock and roll. For the bluntness I offer..

"All Apologies"

One of their biggest hits and a song I remember hearing a lot of in my college days was "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

Nirvana would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014. The band has also sold 25 million albums in the United States and over three times that world wide. In 1992 the band won two MTV Music Awards.

"Come As You Are"

It is hard to believe it has been 21 years since Kurt Cobain passed away. It sames like it was not that long ago. However, the music lives on in video and recordings. Thanks for visiting. I will be back soon kicking off week two of the A to Z: Challenge.

It is very hard to believe it's been this long. Seems like yesterday in my mind. Can still the headlines and front page photo.

Thanks, Mike, you always inspire me with memories of the best artists. I often wonder what Corbain would be doing today.
