Kurt Cobain's Biography Kurt Donald Cobain was born to Wendy and Donald Cobain on February 20, 1967 in the small logging community of Aberdeen Washington and his life ended on April 5, 1994. Kurt fronted one of the greatest bands of our time called Nirvana. In this report I hope to inform you about the life and mysterious death of Kurt Cobain. Kurt had a good childhood, but a troubled adolescence. Partly because of his parents splitting up in 1975 when Kurt was eight years old.
He was in several bands throughout highschool, some of them were named Fecal Matter, Skid Row, Brown Cow, The Sellouts, and Pencap Chew. Around the time of Kurts senoir year he formed Nirvana with high school friend, Krist (Chris) Novoselic. A few drummers of their's fell through and then they found what kurt called "the worlds best drummer", Dave Grohl. His drumming style was exactly what nirvana needed. Two months before Kurt's high school graduation he dropped out.
His father was a merchant seaman and was away when John was born. Julia taught Lennon how to play the banjo, piano, and bought him his first guitar while his father was away during his childhood. John Lennon got his name from Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his paternal grandfather John “Jack” Lennon. While his father was away from home he sent regular payments to Lennon and Julia back in Liverpool. The payments stopped in February of 1944, after he went absent without leave, he returned six months later.
He strived all throughout his life to be the very best. Johnny Allen Hendrix was born on November 27, 1942 in Seattle, Washington to Al and Lucille Hendrix, and not until four years later did his father change his son's name to James Marshall Hendrix. He certainly did not lead an easy life with his sporadic schooling and his parents' divorce in 1958. Added to the building pressures, his mother died just one year later ("Jimi", Rolling 42). Hendrix purchased his first guitar in 1958, probably to relieve tensions as it was the same year his parents divorced.
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, the “Fab Four” as they were called were each born in the early forties in Liverpool, England. These were the four “permanent” members of what we know as the Beatles today, however when John was first starting out in the music industry, the members in his several different bands changed many times (Markowski). One of John’s first and biggest steps toward becoming the amazing musician that he would later become was his first guitar, a gift from his aunt at age sixteen. John soon formed his own musical group that he titled the Quarrymen, after the school that he attended. During a performance at the Woolton Parish Church in Liverpool, future member Paul McCartney is invited to join the group.
Lars is a very great drummer. McGovney was the original bass player. And Dave Mustain was the original lead guitarist. Lars first began playing at the age of 13 when his grandmother brought him home a cheap set of drums which he pounded in. He was inspiried and began to like music after his father took him to a Deep Purple concert.
Kurt Donald Cobain was the leader of Nirvana, the multi-platinum grunge band that redefined the sound of the nineties. Cobain was born on the 20th of February 1967 in Hoquaim, a small town 140 kilometres south-west of Seattle. His mother was a cocktail waitress and his father was an auto mechanic. Cobain soon moved to nearby Aberdeen, a depressed and dying logging town. Cobain was for most his childhood a sickly bronchitic child.
Sadly Dhani, Julian, and Sean have been fatherless for quite some time. George Harrison had died after going through throat cancer in 1998, having a fan break into his home and attacking him and his wife Olivia with a knife resulting in him getting treated for a collapsed lung and minor stab wounds, and in May of 2001 his cancer returned and lung surgery had to be preformed. The doctors discovered that the cancer had spread to his brain. He traveled to the United States for treatment and eventually landed at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles where he died on November 29, 2001, at a friend's house with his wife and son at his side.
