In most cultures graveyard is not just a place to bury the dead. People come there to say goodbye, to cry, to recall memories, to laugh, to bring flowers and to light a candle.

None of the grunge musicians who passed away in last decades has a famous grave that would make fans go on pilgrimages as it happened with Jim Morrison’s place of rest on the Père Lachaise Cementary. Perhaps it’s better.

And yet I realise that Kurt, Layne, Andrew, Shannon and others influenced a lot of people and many of us who were growing up listening to their music would love to come to their graves, say hello&thank you and listen to their songs again.

A couple of years ago I created a virtual graveyard with the help of my then fiancé and fellow grunge lover Katie Bee but it didn’t have much traffic and disappeared from server after several months. Perhaps this blog will be luckier 🙂
