Kurt Cobain anniversary: The voice of a generation

Left by visitors at Viretta Park were images of Kurt Cobain and candles extinguished by Saturday’s rain. The park, at 151 Lake Washington Blvd. E., is next to the Seattle home where Nirvana’s lead singer and driving force had lived at the time of his suicide two decades ago.

With the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death approaching, I would like to say a few words about what Kurt Cobain meant to me [“Remembering Kurt Cobain and Nirvana: the band that defined Seattle,” Local News, March 29].

He was the voice of my generation, and his suicide did nothing to diminish the fact that he was a brilliant man who changed so many things in his short time on earth.

Nirvana’s music will stand the test of time and continue to inspire legions of fans from all over the world. He was a wonderful representative for the city of Seattle and for the state of Washington.

Rest in peace Kurt Cobain, you will always be missed and loved.

Jeff Swanson, Everett
