* I think one of the reasons so many people connected to him is they could tell his music was really pure and instinctual.
o Badly Drawn Boy
* I remember Kurt for what he was, caring, generous and sweet.
o Krist Novoselic
* He said, ‘Man, I just escaped from Exodus’ [a treatment facility]. I didn’t have any foresight that the guy was going to do what he did. I could tell he was bummed out, and I’d been that way before. We were at baggage claim, and I thought I’d ask him to come stay at my house. I turned around and he was gone… What if. Only if. A lot of my friends have died. If only he’d…
o Duff McKagan
* He had an amazing ear for melody.
o Norah Jones
* Lyrically I thought Kurt’s writing was sort of cynical and that his words meant more than even he realized.
o Lou Barlow (Sebadoh)
* I cried, I don’t know why….I don’t like his music or anything….you know it’s awful about his baby I just……I don’t want to talk about that…..I just don’t think he has very many guts……I just don’t see why he wouldn’t want to see his daughter grow up…you know…that he wouldn’t be excited enough about that to not think of himself……people just start thinking of themselves too much. I don’t think it’s so much that they become conscious of the world of video and the world of this and that and a world of fame, they just think of themselves and no matter who you are and whether you’re a rock star or a garbage man, if you’re thinking of yourself all the time you’re not gonna be very good at what you do. With a baby you can tell them funny jokes when they’re two and they’ll love it, you can teach them about how everyone’s an idiot and they’ll love it…..but you know…..it doesn’t occur to a lot of people how intense that is…..how beautiful it is.
o John Frusciante (Years later, the clean John, turned in something like a Nirvana fan, playing nirvana covers in his shows)
* I remember watching Kurt come through and thinking, ‘God, this music is nuclear’, This is really splitting the atom. They raised the temperature for everybody. Manufactured pop never looked so cold as when that heat was around. Nirvana made everything else look silly.
* Most kings get driven so insane that they try to hit the same vein Kurt Cobain did
* He had a touch most guitarists would kill for.
o Chuck Berry
* I only met Kurt once…I was touched by him. He seemed a little shell shocked as though he felt yet another show might drop at any time.
o Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys)
* You know, I always thought I’d go first. I don’t know why I thought that, it just seemed like I would. I mean, I didn’t know him on a daily basis – far from it. But, in a way, I don’t even feel right being here without him. It’s so difficult to really believe he’s gone. I still talk about him like he’s still here, you know. I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make any sense.
o Eddie Vedder
* I meet him a few times. He was an pretty cool guy.
o Ozzy Osbourne
* In twenty years from now, when people will look back at the 90’s, they wont remember the commercial giants like Ace of Base or Backstreet Boys, they will remember the artistic bands and artists like Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
o Charles R. Cross
* I think one of Kurt’s strengths was his simplicity. He knew how to write really catchy songs that said a lot without doing too much.
o Steve Diggle (Buzzcocks)
* The only person I have any respect for as a songwriter over the last 10 years is Kurt Cobain. He was the perfect cross between Lennon and McCartney…but he was a miserable fuck at the same time.
o Noel Gallagher (Oasis)
* Cobain was a marvellous singer…I heard his unplugged version of that Leadbelly song and it was such a perfect vocal that I was really moved.
o Allen Ginsberg
* He had a wonderful balance of raw, dangerous anger, but also he was this delicate, fun person…He was brilliant, but he played dumb. And you know, Kurt was funny as shit.
o Dave Grohl
* Kurt chewed bubblegum in his soul.
o Courtney Love
* Kurt Cobain was one of the best of our time
* I dont think there’s any better expresion for that era (the 90s) then Kurt Cobain and Nirvana.
o Sam Mendes
* Rage and aggression were elements for Kurt to play with as an artist, but he was profoundly gentle and intelligent.
o Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth)
* He had life figured out really young. He knew life wasn’t always fair.
o Wendy O’Connor (mother)
* [He] was very talented, but he was passive-aggressive, kind of a whiny white guy, basically.
o Camille Paglia
* [If he] applied the same brain to his music that he applied to his drug-infested life, its reasonable to think that his music may not have made much sense either.
o Andy Rooney
* I think Kurt was one of the deepest thinkers we’ve had in popular music over the last 20 years and if anyone deserves to have his songs dwelled upon it’s him.
o Jim Sclavunos (Bad Seeds)
* Kurt and I weren’t the closest of friends, but I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child.
o Layne Staley (Alice in Chains)
* I mourn for Kurt. A once beautiful, then pathetic, lost and heroically stupid boy.
o Pete Townshend (the Who)
* He really, really inspired me. He was so great. Wonderful. One of the best, but more than that. Kurt was one of the absolute best of all time for me.
o Neil Young
* There’s something wrong with that boy. He frowns for no good reason.
o William S. Burroughs
* That kid had heart.
o Bob Dylan
* I don’t know why everyone on earth felt so close to that guy; he was beloved and endearing and inoffensive in some weird way. For all his screaming and all of his darkness, he was just lovable.
o Anthony Kiedis
* He was a genius.
