April 10 Officially Declared Nirvana Day
April 10 has officially been declared Nirvana Day in the city of Hoquiam, Washington, a small town located four miles from Kurt Cobain's hometown Aberdeen. According to KXRO Radio, the celebration comes as a tribute to Nirvana's Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction. "They bring great honor, I think as I say, to our entire community," commented Hoquiam mayor Jack Durney. "And I think that it's good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it's good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments." Meanwhile, an interesting Nirvana story has surfaced as a part of the latest Flaming Lips book, confirming Cobain had visited the infamous punk rocker GG Allin in prison sometime during early 1990. Known as one of the most deranged musicians in rock history, videos of Allin's live shows are still highly controversial and feature the singer regularly stripping, fighting crowd members and smearing feces over his face after defecating onstage. "After we told him who we were and that we were big fans, he proceeded to curse and spit at us and kept yelling that we were 'just a couple of Kansas City fa-ots who want their d-ks sucked," drummer Nathan Roberts said about encountering GG with Kurt. As Loudwire reports, Cobain talked with MTV about Allin shortly after the singer's death. "I was too afraid," he said about never seeing GG live. "I could have went one time, I knew he was playing, but I just didn't get around to it. It would have been something." Full story regarding the prison visit can be found in "Staring at Sound: the True Story of Oklahoma's Fabulous Flaming Lips" book, available over on Amazon.
