Kurt Cobain: New Pre-Suicide Revelations

In the months preceding his suicide in April 1994, Nirvana's Kurt Cobain considered quitting his band, Nirvana, so that he could instead work with wife Courtney Love's band, it has just been revealed in a previously unpublished interview that will appear in the British magazine Uncut on Monday. Reuters reports that the rock legend said he felt a stronger affinity with the band members in Hole than he did with any other musicians.

In the Uncut interview, which is being published in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Cobain's death, the Nirvana frontman said eight months before he committed suicide, "I'd like to (collaborate with Love). But to tell you the truth, I would rather just quit my band and join Hole. When I have played music with them, there's a level of connection that's a little bit higher than with anyone else I ever played with."

Cobain also revealed that he was thinking of moving away from grunge toward acoustic music. "It might be nice to start playing acoustic guitar and be thought of as a singer and a songwriter, rather than a grunge rocker," he said in the interview that was originally meant to be aired on French television. "I could sit down on a chair and play acoustic guitar like Johnny Cash or something, and it won't be a big joke."

Cobain, who was just 27 when he shot himself in his Seattle home where he was recovering from an overdose of drugs and alcohol, is seen as the leader of the grunge movement that emerged from Seattle and became one of the most powerful forces in 1990s rock, notes Reuters.
