Krist Novoselic: 'If Kurt Cobain Had a Clear Mind, He Wouldn't Have Killed Himself'
Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic recently discussed the matter of frontman Kurt Cobain's suicide, which had marked its 20th anniversary this April.

Chatting with Reason TV, Krist noted, "The drug abuse was a big part of it, he was under a lot of pressure. He made a bad choice, he was probably pretty ripped when he decided to do what he did. If he'd had a clear mind, he probably wouldn't have done it ... He was high on heroin."

During the rest of the interview, Novoselic talked about leaving the Democratic Party and owning guns. "I was a Democrat for about four or five years, acted Democrat," he said (via Loudwire). "I thought I could reform the party, maybe I wasn't going about it right. Maybe somebody can, and somebody will. But I don't see it, it's just a top down structure, it's a soft money conduit."

Focusing on guns, the bassist added, "I own guns, I think they are a good tool to have out in the country. I should be able to protect my home and my family. I have pistols, and semiautomatic rifles, a shotgun. I have chickens, you need a shotgun, you get a raccoon in there, they'll wipe you out. If I didn't have a shotgun, I wouldn't get fresh eggs."
