Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain wanted to collaborate with Iggy Pop.

According to Pop, the late singer left an answerphone message for him, but then was impossible to make contact with.

Pop said: “He called me up once at two in the morning. But this was when I was old enough to start going to bed at 9.30. When I’m not gigging I’m sensible so I didn’t take his call.

“It was cool because it was a great musician at this peak and he’s going ‘Iggy this is Kurt Cobain, let’s get in the studio man.' So he leaves me a number for the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

Pop told PR Insider: “Then every time I would call it was like, ‘Mr Cobain is under the bed,’ or ‘We haven’t heard from Mr Cobain in three days'.”
