This iconic image graces my office wall and is a haunting image of Kurt Cobain and serves as a reminder of how precious life is.

Musical genius and tortured soul. Kurt Cobain is best known as the guitarist and frontman of the Nirvana. Cobain is remembered as one of the most iconic and influential rock musicians in the history of alternative music.

In the late 1980s, Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene, releasing its first album, Bleach.. They developed a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses. After signing to major label DGC Records, Nirvana found unexpected worldwide success with "Smells Like Teen Spirit", the first single from the band's second album Nevermind (1991), which has now been ranked as one of the greatest songs in the history of rock music. Nevermind has also been called one of the greatest albums of all time and has sold over 30 million copies worldwide.

Cobain has been described as a "Generation X icon". He was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with Nirvana bandmates Dave Grohl and Novoselic, in their first year of eligibility in 2014. In 2003, David Fricke of Rolling Stone ranked him the 12th greatest guitarist of all time. He was ranked 7th by MTV in the "22 Greatest Voices in Music". In 2006, he was placed 20th by Hit Parader on their list of the "100 Greatest Metal Singers of All Time".
