Today would have been the 51st birthday of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. His daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, commemorated the occasion by unearthing two never-before-seen photos of her father.
One is of Kurt and his daughter playing in a kiddie pool, the other features him posing for the camera while wearing a Breeders t-shirt. “I hope they don’t have the internet wherever you are. I feel like that would be counterproductive,” Frances captioned her photo. “Regardless, Happy Birthday to an angel.”
Kurt’s wife, Courtney Love, also honored her husband. “happy birthday baby god I miss you,” she wrote beneath a photo of the two together.
Cobain’s one-time rival, Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong also paid tribute.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Courtney Love took to Instagram to thank her late husband Kurt Cobain for the impact he had on her life.
The letter reads:
“That Christmas moment in everyones lives that you never forget, the one that makes you feel on top of the world, where the greatest gifts are the loved ones you shared that moment with. Well, this is mine, I’m grateful to have ever experienced that moment. Merry Christmas, Kurt, the greatest true love I’ve ever experienced in my life. You gave me the gift that makes life worth living, our incredibly talented, loving, beautiful and gifted daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Merry Christmas, Bean. Love, mom and dad.”
It isn’t the first time Courtney addressed Kurt from Instagram. In August, she posted an emotional appeal to him, saying: “Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus, Kurt, look at her face, what on earth were you thinking. God, I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim.”
“Soon after Kurt and Courtney got together and had their baby, Frances Bean, we were playing in Seattle, and the two of them came to see us. After the show, Kurt cornered me in the dressing room. ‘I don’t know what to do,’ he said. ‘Courtney thinks Frances likes me more than her.’ Someone took a photo of us right at that moment. My back is turned to the camera, and I remember that conversation vividly.”

I think she’s a smart woman. I admire her maturity given that she lost her father at a very young age and her mother had personal problems for such a long time.
You go girl!
