Thieves Steal Kurt Cobain’s Ashes

Apparently, it’s gospel. Courtney told the NME that she has felt ‘suicidal’ since heartless thieves broke into her home and stole, among other things, a teddy bear shaped backpack in which she kept Kurt’s ashes.

I don’t really know where to go with this one, folks. on one hand, it’s obviously abhorrent that anyone should go through something so horrible. Think what you like about the mental Ms Love, but it is her late husband’s ashes. There is simply no way to justify anyone other than her possessing them. But at the same time, is it just me that finds it rather amusing that she kept them in a teddy bear shaped backpack? That’s just great. One of modern Rock music’s most lauded and deified legends and in the afterworld he’s Teddy Fucking Ruxpin. It’s nice to know that the dignity he had in life went out the window in death thanks to his batty missus.

That said, I daresay some unscrupulous collector (or worse still, a creepily devoted Nirvana fan) will pay some outrageous black market fee for the dubious honour of owning these. But it just isn’t right. No matter what you think of Courtney (and for me, not much) she’s the only person who should be in possession of them. So here’s hoping that they find their way home, if only to find out just where he’ll come to rest next. For what it’s worth, I’m hoping she goes for a Daffy Duck bumbag.

  1. stolen? a likely story…….sold by one careless owner more like.

  2. She probably snorted his ashes. You’d probably get quite a good dunt off them, I suppose, with the amount of gear that he shovelled.

  3. It was smack though, screw that noise.

    And Ms. Love cashing in on her husbands name? Shame on you Dusty!

  4. oh, y’know, any port in a storm, ELM………

  5. Nah, never fancied it. Marti Pellow took it. That removes any desirability away from it. 😉
