Aberdeen is finally getting ready to honor its native son.
This past Wednesday, the city’s mayor, Bill Simpson, proclaimed Thursday, February 20, as Kurt Cobain Day, “in recognition of his artistic achievements,” in the words of the official proclamation. “Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”
It would have been Cobain’s 47th birthday. Nirvana’s lead singer and creative force committed suicide at his Seattle home on April 5, 1994.More
