20 Years Ago This Weekend, New Pics Revealed, and Pretty Reckless Tour


20 Years Ago This Weekend

 

This weekend brings the 20 year mark of a moment in music history that will forever be seared in the brains of those who were around at the time. Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain took his own life with a shotgun. His body was found by an electrician on April 8th 1994, but the corner estimated he died April 5th that year. With the anniversary of his untimely demise comes a ton of artists remembering the singer for being an unofficial spokesperson of Generation X. From Beck to Billie Joe Armstrong to Neil Young, the music world is remembering Cobain as the leader of a band that changed music drastically in the early 90s, but also remorse the loss of a talent who left the earth far too early.

 

New Pics Revealed

 

Meanwhile Seattle Police have released a couple of more pics from the Cobain death scene and this time they show parts of the late singer’s body. Two pics posted online show Kurt’s left foot next to what appears to be a box of shotgun shells. Another shows his arm with a hospital bracelet tag thingy and even a track mark on his arm with his iconic tattoo. Seattle police say there’s no use in releasing photos of Cobain laying on the ground with his hair blown back and blood coming from his nose and trauma to his eyes.

 

 

Pretty Reckless Tour

 

And get ready for it, the Pretty Reckless are going on tour. The chick fronted band earned a No. 1 slot on the rock charts with the tune “Heaven Knows” off their sophomore album Going to Hell, which debuted at No. 5. They’ll be in Peoria at the Peoria Civic Center May 16th.
