Judyth Piazza chats with Beverly Cobain,Cousin of Kurt Cobain: Judyth asks did Courtney Kill Kurt?

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

 

In 1994, Kurt Cobain, 27-year-old front man for the band Nirvana, shot himself to death. It was a shot heard around the world and it left an entire generation of young people devastated and trying to make sense out of the tragic loss.

 In Dying to be Free: A Healing Guide for Families after a Suicide, Beverly Cobain (cousin of Kurt) and co-author Jean Larch address the question of why anyone might intentionally end their life and offer hope for those left behind--the survivors. Cobain is a psychiatric nurse and survivor of three family suicides.

"During the last years of his life, Cobain struggled with heroin addiction, illness and depression, his fame and public image, as well as the professional and lifelong personal pressures surrounding himself and his wife, musician Courtney Love.

On April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle, the victim of what was officially ruled a suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. The circumstances of his death have become a topic of public fascination and debate.

Since their debut, Nirvana, with Cobain as a songwriter, has sold over 25 million albums in the US alone, and over 50 million worldwide."[3][4]
