On the 8th April 1994 an electrician arrived at Kurt Cobain`s Lake Washington house to install security lights, and discovered the singer`s body. Forensic experts later confirmed that he had been dead for three days – making the 5th of April this year the 20th Anniversary of the Nirvana frontman`s death. We in the London Sims wanted to commemorate the iconic singer, so we had a Tribute Band to play some of Nirvana`s greatest hits in Hyde Park.
The event was very popular – with a lot of devoted fans who wanted to remember him. Kurt`s untimely death is riddled with conspiracy theories, but everyone there was agreed that he was a brilliant songwriter and musician who should have never been taken from the world so soon.
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us”
“My girl, my girl, don’t lie to me
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
My girl, my girl, where will you go
I’m going where the cold wind blows.” *

As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy.
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is yours, don’t be late.
Take a rest, as a friend, as an old memoria ….
Come as you are
“The worst crime is faking it.”
… remember, it’s better to burn out than to fade away. Peace, love, empathy.” Kurt`s last note.
