Publishing houses admit they're considering making the Nirvana singer's private thoughts available to the public...

KURT COBAIN’s diaries may be compiled to form a book, according to US reports.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Cobain kept extensive diaries during his youth and time in Nirvana.

Last year, Courtney Love gave author Charles R. Cross access to these as part of his research for a new biography of the late Nirvana star, titled ‘Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain’.

Now, according to the New York Post newspaper, the journals are being considered by publishing houses in New York with a view to publication later this year.

A source said: “There is a lot of interest. Kurt was remarkably insightful, funny and complicated. This book will be a primer for all young rock musicians and an education for everyone who thought they knew him.”

Love previously told NME.COM that plans are in the pipeline for an exhibition of Cobain’s non-musical work in London.

She commented: “I’ve spoken to someone in London about showing funny poetry, sick boy cartoons, beautiful prose and his paintings and sculptures which are amazing… There are just tons and tons of diaries. He was very prolific and a good, if not sometimes great, evocative writer.”
