Video footage of a middle-aged man heckling Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES, DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED) about NIRVANA star Kurt Cobain's last days during Duff's interview and book-signing appearance this past Friday, October 21 at Seattle University in Seattle, Washington can be seen below.Seventeen years ago, Cobain took his own life. There have long been reports that McKagan was one of the last people to see the rocker when they wound up on the same flight to Seattle together. VH1 Radio Networks' Dave Basner asked Duff earlier this year if that was the case. "It is true. We did," he replied. "We talked. We were both sort of in the same boat. A couple guys recognizing where each other was at. It's no fun being that completely and utterly addicted. And then we get off at Sea-Tac Airport and it's like, there's a mass rush of people, and all the sudden because it's like him from a big band and me from a big band and all the sudden everybody just stopped and stared at us. Maybe I just remember it this way but everyone just stopped and we were like, 'Okay where do we go with this thing?' But I went to baggage claim and that was it." Cobain's body was discovered on April 8, 1994 by an electrician who arrived at Kurt's home to install a security system. The rocker had been lying there for days after having shot himself. A suicide note was found at the scene, addressed to Kurt's childhood imaginary friend, "Boddah," that said, paraphrasing, "I haven't felt the excitement of listening to as well as creating music, along with really writing for too many years now."
