Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl said that he knew that Kurt Cobain was fragile and that he was already prepared for his death by the time he committed suicide.
He said, “There are some people that you meet in life that you just know that they are not going to live to be 100 years old. In some ways, you kind of prepare yourself emotionally for that to be a reality.”
He said that learning of Cobain’s death was a shock and that he was heartbroken at the news of his passing.
He added, “It was a terrible surprise. It was probably the worst thing that has happened to me in my life. I remember the day after that I woke up and I was heartbroken that he was gone. I just felt like, ‘Okay, so I get wake up today and have another day and he doesn’t. Usually it takes something like that for people to appreciate life as a gift and you have to take advantage of the time that you have. Sometimes you just can’t save someone from themselves.”
So true, and still so sad. RIP Kurt Cobain. You were taken from the world too young.
