Kurt Cobain May Be Honored With Bridge Dedication In His Hometown
Nirvana's "Nevermind" is approaching its 20th birthday this fall, bringing about more and more tributes to the band and Kurt Cobain. Now, Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen, Wa., is mulling whether to honor the late singer by naming a famous bridge after him, the WP reports. The Young Street Bridge, located above the Wishkah River just a few blocks from the home Cobain shared with his mother, might become the Kurt Cobain Bridge if the city's residents approve it. A nearby park could also be renamed Cobain Landing. The bridge has become something of a shrine to Cobain fans, with graffiti and memorabilia being left on the mud-ridden banks underneath it. Some people claim that the grunge icon slept there in his teens after he dropped out of high school, though it's unclear if that's true. Cobain also allegedly wrote the "Nevermind" track "Something In The Way" about the time he spent there in his youth. Members of the local community are expected to share their opinions on the matter at a July 27 City Council meeting. Although the Council seems in favor of the honor, radio station KXRO says "up until now, the City of Aberdeen has been slow to memorialize Cobain due to his suicide, drug use and negative comments about his hometown." Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.
