The Eternal Legacy

They came, they saw, they conquered. Nirvana gave us seven short years of glorius chaos, the likes of which will never be seen again. The group had split up at the begining of April '94 after their long awaited European tour collapsed around them and any thoughts of reconciliations were soon dashed when the body of tragic singer-songwriter Kurt Cobain was found at his home in Seattle on the morning of Friday the 8th of April. Months and months of mounting pressure had taken its toll leaving Kurt seeking a final solution to end his pain and suffering through suicide. The reluctant superstar, with one quick pull of the trigger, had cemented both himself, and Nirvana, into the rock and roll hall of fame for eternity, something he had always been at pains to avoid. Nirvana were the underdog's band, the revenge of street punks, a spanner in the works of the corporate machine and the last great band of the nineties. They will be a very hard act to follow. The untimely demise of Kurt Cobain was the full stop to complete the final chapter in the book of the punk revolution. Control was now regained in America, as well as the rest of Europe, the final heavy tour schedule had broken Kurt and knocked the guts out of the group. Half way through a grueling ten month schedule was to become the straw the broke the camel's back. Kurt could no longer go on with the endless cycle of depression and pain and, to him, there was only one way out. There are lessons to be learnt from the rise and fall of Nirvana. Enter the machine at your own risk because today it is more stronger than it has ever been, it'll eat you up and spit you out as soon as you have out stayed your use. Rock and Roll used to be fun, but in the nineties it's no different to joining the army. Cherish the memories of Kurt Cobain and the legacy of Nirvana. Support Courtney Love and support the true underground. It's time for change. Ignore the machine. Kurt Cobain rest in peace.
