Kurt Cobain Statue to Be Unveiled in His Hometown
Fresh details of upcoming Kurt Cobain Day in Nirvana frontman's hometown of Aberdeen have surfaced, confirming that the musician's statue is set to be unveiled at the Aberdeen Museum of History.

The event itself will take place on February 20, marking what would have been Cobain's 47th birthday. As for the statue, it is the work of local artist Randi HubbardSeattle Times reports.

Kurt's didn't exactly have too fond memories of his hometown, describing it as "'Twin Peaks' without the excitement." Aberdeen also took some time to recognize the musician, mostly due to his severe drug issues.

"Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements," stated Mayor Bill Simpson.
