Stomach condition

Cobain's stomach condition was emotionally debilitating to him, and he intermittently tried to find its cause, usually at the insistence of Love. None of the many doctors he consulted were able to pinpoint the specific cause. .He suffered from self consciousness and poor body image due to his low body weight, which was due to malnourishment caused by his stomach condition, or poor diet (as attributed by numerous doctors), or both.^ He makes a tincture of the roots and uses it to ease cramping, spasmodic coughing and other conditions which cause the body to twitch and shakes.

Substance abuse

.Cobain's first experience with heroin occurred sometime in 1986, administered to him by a local drug dealer in Tacoma, Washington who had previously been supplying him with Percodan.^ And when I walk down the neighboring street, I often think of Curt Cobain who almost died in a car on this street after scoring some heroin nearby.

We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard." .Cobain told Melody Maker in 1992 that hearing Surfer Rosa for the first time convinced him to abandon his more Black Flag-influenced songwriting in favor of the "Iggy Pop / Aerosmith" type songwriting that appeared on Nevermind.^ However, Kurt Cobain remains a pop songwriter, and the melodies don't get buried under Steve Albini 's sonic assault, as "Heart-Shaped Box" and "Pennyroyal Tea" prove.

Cobain contributed guest vocals to his friend Dylan Carlson's drone metal band Earth, on a song entitled "Divine and Bright", which would appear on the band's 1995 album, Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars, re-released in 2001.
Shortly before his death, Cobain was planning to begin a writing and recording collaboration with his friend, R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe. Stipe has stated that Cobain quit the project at the very last minute, with a chauffeur, plane ticket, studio and recording equipment arranged for him.

[75] Cobain would complain when fans and rock journalists attempted to decipher his singing and extract meaning from his lyrics, writing "Why in the hell do journalists insist on coming up with a second-rate Freudian evaluation of my lyrics, when 90 percent of the time they've transcribed them incorrectly?"[76] While Cobain would insist of the subjectivity and unimportance of his lyrics, he was known to labour and procrastinate in writing them, as well as changing their content and order during performances.[77] Cobain would describe his lyrics himself as "a big pile of contradictions. They're split down the middle between very sincere opinions that I have and sarcastic opinions and feelings that I have and sarcastic and hopeful, humorous rebuttals toward cliché bohemian ideals that have been exhausted for years."[78]

[80] Cobain would say in an interview with Musician that "some of my very personal experiences, like breaking up with girlfriends and having bad relationships, feeling that death void that the person in the song is feeling–very lonely, sick."[81] While Cobain would regard In Utero "for the most part very impersonal",[82] he would on the album deal with the childhood divorce of his parents, his newfound name and the public image and perception of himself and Courtney Love on "Serve the Servants", his enamoured relationship with Love, conveyed through lyrical themes of pregnancy and the female anatomy on "Heart-Shaped Box". Cobain wrote "Rape Me" not only as objective discussion of rape, but a metaphorical protest against his treatment by the media. Along with drug addiction and abortion on "Pennyroyal Tea" and women's rights and the life of Frances Farmer on "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle".
.Cobain was affected enough to write the song "Polly" from Nevermind, after reading a newspaper story of an incident in 1987, where a young girl was kidnapped after attending a punk rock show, then raped and tortured with a blowtorch.^ In 1989, Dutroux was sentenced to 13 years in jail for kidnapping and raping young girls.

Cobain immersed himself in artistic projects throughout his life, just as much as he did in songwriting. The sentiments of his work followed the same subjects of his lyrics, often expressed through his own dark and macabre sense of humour; noted was his fascination with physiology, his own and rare medical conditions, and the human anatomy. Often unable to afford artistic resources, Cobain would improvise with materials, painting on board games and album sleeves, and painting with an array of substances, including his own bodily fluids. .The artwork seen in his Journals would later draw acclaim as being of a high artistic standard.^ "And if you were about to perpetrate one of the biggest terrorist outrages the world has ever seen, would you draw attention to yourself by arguing in a car park?"

Numerous of Cobain's paintings, collages and sculptures would appear in the artwork of many of Nirvana's albums; as well as his artistic concepts which would feature notably in their music videos, the production and direction of which were acrimonious due to Cobain's artistic perfectionism of his visions.
.Cobain would contribute backing guitar for a spoken word recording of beat poet William S. Burroughs' entitled "the "Priest" they called him".[86] Cobain regarded Burroughs as a hero, and among his few possessions during Nirvana's European tour was a copy of Burroughs' Naked Lunch, purchased in a London bookstall.^ For the record this Guitar Hero [expletive] is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction.

The book explored Cobain's drug addiction, as well as the countless controversies surrounding the band. After Cobain's death, Azerrad re-published the book to include a final chapter discussing the last year of Cobain's life. The book is notable for its involvement of the band members themselves, who gave interviews and personal information to Azerrad specifically for the book. .In 2006, Azerrad's taped conversations with Cobain were transformed into a documentary about Cobain, titled Kurt Cobain About a Son.^ McMurray said, "It's a really cool-looking guitar because it's smashed and held together with duct tape and Kurt Cobain wrote on it."

.Though this film does not feature any music by Nirvana, it has songs by the artists that inspired Cobain.^ While Love’s main gripe seems to be the appearance of Cobain’s character model and a feature that allows it to perform other artist’s songs, Activision Vice President Tim Riley told The Guardian that she was very cooperative in the creation of the game: .

.In the 1998 documentary Kurt & Courtney, filmmaker Nick Broomfield investigated Tom Grant's claim that Cobain was actually murdered, and took a film crew to visit a number of people associated with Cobain and Love, including Love's father, Cobain's aunt, and one of the couple's former nannies.^ Courtney Love controls Kurt's estate.

.Broomfield also spoke to Mentors bandleader Eldon "El Duce" Hoke, who claimed that Love had offered him $50,000 to kill Cobain.^ One of the men who was starved to death, Walter Bergmann, had offered to spy for the British, and fell under suspicion because he spoke Russian.

^ Belgian TV came up with an anonymous witness who claimed that leading Socialist politician, Guy Mathot, had ordered Cools to be killed.

.Although Hoke claimed that he knew who killed Cobain, he failed to mention a name, and offered no evidence to support his assertion.^ He happened to be staying at the apartment of Sluggo , who offered one of his guitars in exchange for the smashed one, also asking Cobain to sign it.

^ Belgian TV came up with an anonymous witness who claimed that leading Socialist politician, Guy Mathot, had ordered Cools to be killed.

Broomfield inadvertently captured Hoke's last interview, as he died days later, reportedly hit by a train while drunk. In the end, however, Broomfield felt he hadn't uncovered enough evidence to conclude the existence of a conspiracy. In a 1998 interview, Broomfield summed it up by saying,
"I think that he committed suicide. .I don't think that there's a smoking gun.^ I'm sure (heck, I know) there are amnios that are done for morally illicit reasons, but I don't think all are.

.And I think there's only one way you can explain a lot of things around his death.^ Actually, you could not: I have seen lots of things being run, but after a week, I could not tell you who was in charge.

Not that he was murdered, but that there was just a lack of caring for him. I just think that Courtney had moved on, and he was expendable."[99]
Journalists Ian Halperin and Max Wallace took a similar path and attempted to investigate the conspiracy for themselves. .Their initial work, the 1999 book Who Killed Kurt Cobain? argued that, while there wasn't enough evidence to prove a conspiracy, there was more than enough to demand that the case be reopened.^ There is enough evidence to prove otherwise as well… .

[100] A notable element of the book included their discussions with Grant, who had taped nearly every conversation that he had undertaken while he was in Love's employ. .Over the next several years, Halperin and Wallace collaborated with Grant to write a second book, 2004's Love and Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain.^ Over several years, Reinado travelled to Australia to receive military training from the Australian Defence Force , studying defence management in October 2003 and emergency management in August 2004.

In 2001, writer Charles R. Cross published a biography of Cobain titled Heavier Than Heaven. .For the book, Cross conducted over 400 interviews, and was given access by Courtney Love to Cobain's journals, lyrics, and diaries.^ Former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's ashes have been stolen from the home of his widow Courtney Love.

[101] Cross' biography was met with criticism and controversy, including allegations of Cross accepting secondhand (and incorrect) information as fact.[102] .Friend Everett True, who derided the book as being inaccurate, omissive, and highly biased; he said Heavier than Heaven was "the Courtney-sanctioned version of history"[103] or, alternatively, Cross's “Oh, I think I need to find the new Bruce Springsteen now” Kurt Cobain book.^ Kurt Cobain is a legend who everyone misses, and to steal his ashes is despicable.

[104] However, beyond the criticism, the book contained many details about Cobain and Nirvana's career that had otherwise gone unnoted. Additionally, in 2008 Cross published Cobain Unseen: Mosaic of an Artist, a compilation of annotated photographs of and creations and writings by Cobain throughout his life and career.[105] In 2002, a sampling of Cobain's writings was published as Journals. The book is 280 pages with a simple black cover; the pages are arranged somewhat chronologically (although Cobain generally did not date them). The journal pages are reproduced in color, and there is a section added at the back that has explanations and transcripts of some of the less legible pages. The writings begin in the late 1980s and were continued until his death. A paperback version of the book, released in 2003, included a handful of writings that were not offered in the initial release. .In the journals, Cobain talked about the ups and downs of life on the road, made lists of what music he was enjoying, and often scribbled down lyric ideas for future reference.^ Kurt Cobain's ashes and she heard us talking about it and decided to get rid of them....

Upon its release, reviewers and fans were conflicted about the collection. .Many were elated to be able to learn more about Cobain and read his inner thoughts in his own words, but were disturbed by what was viewed as an invasion of his privacy.^ The UK government would also like UK sixth-formers to learn about the British military interventions which have led to the deaths of many innocent civilians around the world.

[106]
.In 2003, Omnibus Press released Godspeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic.^ The Pulse of Radio reports that a smashed guitar that once belonged to late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain was sold for $100,000, according to the Associated Press .

It was written by Jim McCarthy and Barnaby Legg with illustrations by Flameboy. It depicts Cobain's life, but is not a factual biography. Rather, it uses artistic license to tell Cobain's story from his own point of view.
In 2009, ECW Press released a book titled Grunge is Dead: The Oral History of Seattle Rock Music. .It was written by Greg Prato, and features large portions about Nirvana and Kurt Cobain's life and death (including new interviews with bandmates and friends), as well as exploring the history of grunge in great detail.^ Former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's ashes have been stolen from the home of his widow Courtney Love.

A picture of Cobain from the Bleach era is used for the book's front cover, and its title comes from a shirt that Cobain was once photographed wearing.[107]
