It’s been 19 years to the day since Nirvana’s singer, guitarist and principle songwriter Kurt Cobain committed suicide at his home in Seattle, aged just 27.
But despite it being nearly two decades since his death, Cobain’s popularity remains undimmed and Twitter was flooded today with tributes to the musician. “R.I.P Kurt Cobain, gone but never forgotten,” wrote one fan, while another said: “He was the reason I picked up a guitar.”
