    Speaking of Nirvana, I was having this debate with friends the other day -- what if Dave Grohl had committed suicide instead of Kurt Cobain? How would the world of music be different? Would Nirvana have continued on with a replacement for Dave Grohl? If they had stayed together, what would their status be in the music world today -- similar to Pearl Jam, still revered, or lost their luster? Or would Nirvana have broken up anyway, with Kurt Cobain going on to form the equivilent of Foo Fighters? What would have become of Courtney Love?

    There's an alternate universe where Dave Grohl is dead and Kurt Cobain is alive.

    They would have been bigger than the Beatles. And Elvis. Combined.

    Seriously, though, I think Cobain would have been thrown into a deep depression and would have killed himself.

    He was heavily involved with the Democratic party in Washington. Course that was a few years ago.

    I think maybe Nirvana had run its course by the time Cobain killed himself. Maybe he knew that nothing he or they did later could match the transcendent event that was "Nevermind," and nothing they could do would be as good as "In Utero" or the unplugged album.

    Or maybe they would have continued to evolve -- and instead of that he took the easy way out.
