Twitter Pays Respect To Nirvana’s Late Kurt Cobain

Today online social networking site Twitter is paying tribute to the late singer-songwriter, musician and artist Kurt Cobain. Front man for grunge band Nirvana, Cobain passed away back in 1994 and today 17 years on, his fans are leaving their own messages and of course tributes on the popular site.

Twitter which is growing in popularity alongside other networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace is a way for users to tweet messages to one another, follow celebrities and to find out forthcoming events. Over the last few months, we have brought you news about footballers taking to the site, tributes to the late actress Elizabeth Taylor and so on.

Although Nirvana was formed in 1985 and debuted their first album “Bleach” many of you will remember their popular album “Nevermind.”

Married to musician Courtney Love, the 2 had their fair share of media attention either individually or as a couple and on April 5 1994, after suffering from depression, addiction to the drug heroin and bouts of illness, Cobain was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head. Reports concluded that Cobain had indeed shot himself although to this day, there is still speculation as to Love’s involvement in his death.

Many of you have taken to Twitter today to remember the musician with one tweet as metro reported saying, “RIP Kurt Cobain, your music was the sound track of my childhood and early teenage years.” Another said, “17 years today one of the brightest stars in our musical sky was taken from us. RIP Kurt Cobain.”
