With the documentary “Kurt Cobain:Montage of Heck” about to be released, some of those people closest to Nirvana talked about the influences of the frontman of the band on their lives. But Frances Bean Cobain in her latest interview with Rolling Stone said she does not like her dad’s music so much.
“I don’t really like Nirvana. Sorry, promotional people! I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre. The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in.”
Frances (22 years old) few weeks ago expressed once again her love for Oasis, saying that she would love to have Noel Gallagher performing an acoustic set for her wedding (if you want to read more, here‘s what we wrote about it).
She gave a pretty good reason why she isn’t so much into her father’s music: “I was around 15 when I realized he was inescapable. Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad. He’s larger than life. And our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible… but he wasn’t.”
“He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don’t think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did.”
