Kurt Donald Cobain; Born February 20, 1967 – c. April 5, 1994) was an American singer-songwriter and musician, known as the lead singer and guitarist of the rock band Nirvana. Cobain was uncomfortable with the attention he received, which he turned into self destructive behavior. During the last years of his life, Cobain  chose to live with heroin addiction, illness and depression, his fame and public image, as well as the  personal pressures surrounding his life including his wife, musician Courtney Love.  (I sat next to Courtney at the Producers Film Awards, she was lovely and had a genuine energy and an interest in the people around her) .

His parents divorced when he was eight years old, an event which he later said had a profound effect on his life. His mother noted that his personality changed dramatically – Cobain became more defiant and withdrawn. He resented his parents because of that divorce.

On April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, the victim of what was officially ruled a suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. The circumstances of his death have sometimes become a topic of fascination and debate.
