Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain formed the alternative rock group, Nirvana, in 1985.  He was born in Aberdeen, Washington, and went on to pioneer the style of music known as grunge rock in Seattle.  The name Nirvana refers to the concept in Buddhism that Kurt described as “freedom from pain, suffering, and the external world.”  He died tragically in 1994, having lived a compassionate life.  Rest in peace, Kurt.
