KURT REMINDERS

Ten yours after his death, the tragic Nirvana frontman is remembered by Aberdeen...

KURT COBAIN is to be commemorated by his home town of ABERDEEN, WASHINGTON more than a decade after his death.

Residents have decided to honour the Nirvana frontman’s life and accomplishments and two privately owned parks are currently being considered for development into a memorial.

The Kurt Cobain Memorial Committee’s eight members had a meeting on May 13 at Aberdeen City Hall to discuss the best way to commemorate the star, and were joined by 25 members of the public.

Possible ideas included building a commemorative park in or near a downtown area that would include a graffiti wall, the creation of a Cobain youth centre focusing on music and art, and erecting a sign in East Aberdeen that pointed out that the frontman was born in the town.

According to MTV News, private donations will fund the committee projects to pay tribute to the icon and all branches of the Bank Of The Pacific are currently accepting donations to the Kurt Cobain Memorial Project.

Cobain’s grandfather Leland is a member of the committee along with Aberdeen City Council member Paul Fritts and Jeff Burlingame – arts and entertainment editor of the local paper The Daily World.

North Aberdeen Park was earlier this year under consideration to be renamed the Kurt Cobain Memorial Park. The park is near the Wishkah River – made famous by the 1996 Nirvana live album, ‘From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah’.
