Kurt Cobain 'Wanted to Record an Album of Old Blues Covers' Prior to His Death
Kurt Cobain was interested in recording a solo album of blues covers shortly before his death, Wipers guitarist Greg Sage has claimed.

Sage speaks as part of NME's tribute to Kurt Cobain on the 20th anniversary of the Nirvana frontman's death.

"I heard from some people in [Kurt's] camp in his circle that he wanted to come to Arizona and record at my studio, Zenorecords, and do an album of old blues covers," says Sage. "I thought that would be good for him personally, but how do you go from mega-million LP sales to an album of old blues covers from a corporate point of view? Two weeks later he was gone."

Elsewhere in the issue, musicians who recorded Cobain's favourite albums (including members of Pixies, Marine Girls, Gang of Four, the Vaselines and the Slits) celebrate his legacy. Courtney Love also talks about her plans to stage a Kurt Cobain-themed musical if she can get the right people involved.
