Kurt Cobain’s ashes stolen

The ash remains of legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain have gone missing from his widow’s, Courtney Love, Los Angeles Residence. Love, known more for her addiction and rehab than for her own musical career, reported that Cobain’s ashes were kept in a pink teddy-bear-shaped bag along with a lock of his hair. Thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and clothing were also missing. “I can’t believe anyone would take Kurt’s ashes from me,” Love was quoted by News Of the World. “I find it disgusting and right now I’m suicidal.” Kurt Cobain committed suicide with a shotgun while high on heroin in 1994. His ashes were scattered inside a Buddhist temple in New York, and some went into the Wishkah River near his home in Washington. The rest were left with Love.

I’m not sure what is more disturbing here, the fact that someone stole Cobain’s ashes or the fact that they were kept in a pink teddy bear. OK, so I guess it’s not all that surprising that Courtney Love would keep them in such a strange container, but somehow it feels a little unfitting for the remains of someone who, many would argue, was one of the greatest rockers of all time. Regardless, it’s sick and twisted that someone would do such a thing to Cobain’s widow and daughter.
