Kurt Cobain: Collection Of Personal Accounts From Family Relatives



I would like to share some of the memories and perceptions I have concerning
this unique, rare and original human being called Kurt Cobain. I knew Kurt
during his teen-age years in the period from about 1979 to 1984. I was in my
mid-30s and living in and near Montesano. My sister married Kurt's dad, Don, and

I heard from a friend that Kurt was assaulted by a burly, 250-pound logger type.
Evidently, Kurt did not even fight; he just presented the bully with the
appropriate hand gesture everytime he was knocked down until the bully gave up.

A final footnote to this small remembrance of Kurt: A wonderful picture comes to
mind of a rare, ...

profanities. We
(myself included, when I was younger) just loved it. Sometimes kids would throw
rocks and break his windows or pull up his flowers (myself not included, thank
goodness). He was known for a couple of generations of kids as a real weird and
mean guy, even though in actuality he was not. The tormenting went on through
quite a few years, and a new group of kids would take over for the old. Kurt,
however, changed the tradition. When he was running around with Matt Lukin (I
think now of Mudhoney??), Kurt saw the usual group of guys giving Old Man Reeves
a hassle. He literally screamed at these guys to leave Old Man Reeves alone. He
was so emotional about it (as only Kurt could ...
