“If you die you’re completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. I’m not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I’ve got.”-Kurt Cobain (Feb. 20,1967-April 5,1994)

Frances Bean has the same ‘K’ tattoo on her chest that Courtney has for Kurt Cobain.
“I went to the Heart-Shaped Box video shoot”, say Cali. “That was another interesting day as far as arguing goes. We were in LA at the Four Seasons. I think they’d been fighting a lot and Kurt had a vibe like, ‘I wish Courtney leave me alone.’ She was picking at him in a Gold Mountain sort of way. She kept telling him, ‘This is an important video for you, so don’t fuck up. You have to look good.’ Him going, ‘Shut the fuck up. I’ll look how I look. I’ll look like myself. Quit telling me how important this is.’
“That fight escalated over hours,” he continues. “It was always a slow build. In a classic Kurt way of saying ‘fuck you’, he put a cigarette out in middle of his forehead. There was a huge burn there and it looked really nasty. He goes, ‘There, are you happy? Am I going to look fucking good enough for you now?’ It took the wind out of her sails a little. If you watch the video, there’s a lot of make-up on his forehead because it was a really bad scab, big and in the center. In the close-ups, there’s a strip of hair that never seems to move from the middle of his forehead. They had to paste some hair over it.”
