I just heard "Floyd the Barber" on KEXP this morning and was reminded that today is Kurt Cobain's birthday. Am I right in thinking the dude would have been 40 years old today? Jesus. In related business, I recently read Everett True's book on Nirvana and it was pretty damn great. One of the main reasons it's so great is that it's a goofy book on a goofy band. The whole tortured soul thing takes a back seat to hilarious stories of drunken Krist Novoselic and the always cheery Dave Grohl. Buy it on March 30 (release date). Read it. Then listen to Bleach and remember how hard Nirvana rocked. Or you can do so today in memory of Kurt himself.
