MTV News has posted an interesting article that asks the question, “What would Kurt Cobain be doing if he were still alive?” Cobain would have turned 40 last Tuesday (Feb. 20).
It’s, of course, an impossible question, one that’s been asked for years about artists like Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. But what do you think: Would Kurt have gone into hiding and made art purely on his own terms? Would he just take a job as Burger King manager in Iowa somewhere and give up music totally? Or would he have gotten some help for his mental and physical problems, sorted things out and re-emerged as the next American Idol judge?
