There Are Misspelled Names, and Then There's Misspelling Kurt Cobain's Name

The D List is lucky it didn't fuck up the spelling of this Kurt's name.
Every publication makes boneheaded spelling errors, even this one. But in this week's D List, a techno-centric local glossy that seeks to portray Seattle as South Beach with mountains, there's an article on The Tripwires by a writer named C-Leb on page 40. Here, the following passage appears:

"Mark Pickerel, the original drummer for The Screaming Trees, is a self-entity of musicality alone, having recorded with everyone from Curt Cobain to Brandi Carlile, and currently carries the torch of Mark Pickerel and His Praying Hands."
