It’s a meager held belief, but one that’s developing a following: the reason Kurt Cobain killed himself, is because a copy of the documentary Sound City traveled back through time to him. He watched it and hated himself for bringing Dave Grohl to the world. Kurt was pretty chuffed for releasing a 10m+ selling album that featured tangibly brutal sludge metal on it, and after achieving true subversion, the thought of Grohl pandering to arch monoliths of drowsy mediocrity Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty was more than his stout heart could take.

You have to bear in mind also that Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against the Machine were state of the art in ’94. The actual future of Audioslave and With Teeth – which are also surrogately Cobain’s fault – must have just tipped the poor fellow over the edge.

If only people would look at the horror scenarios of their middle ages, they would act more irresponsibly.

And by the way, speaking from the point of view of an engineer and a musician myself, no one gives a tuppeny fuck about the desk in a studio.
