FRANCES BEAN COBAIN Writes Message To KURT COBAIN On His 50th Birthday

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain, posted an emotional tribute to her father online on Monday (February 20), on what would have been his 50th birthday. Frances wrote on Instagram, "Today would have been your 50th birthday. You are loved and you are missed. Thank you for giving me the gift of life. Forever your daughter, Frances Bean."

Kurt Cobain was just 27 years old when he died in 1994 at from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Frances Bean, who is now 21, was only one year old when her father died.

Later in the day, Frances also posted a text exchange between herself and her grandmother — and Kurt's mother — Wendy Cobain. Frances wrote, "I love you so much, thank you for being my one and only grams… I know he is thankful that you raised me to be as strong & compassionate as you are."

Wendy replied, "You were such a caring loving little girl and have turned into such a beautiful young woman, he would be so 'smugly' proud of you... Thank God you were here for me to love and care for."

Wendy Cobain cared for Frances during a period lasting several years in which Frances was estranged from her mother, Courtney Love.

What would Kurt Cobain be doing now on his 50th birthday if he was still alive? The Pulse Of Radio asked his biographer Charles R. Cross. "Towards the end of his life, Kurt was already talking about moving his musical sound away, he said, from, quote, 'screaming,' and more towards blues-based acoustic music," Cross said. "My guess is that he would be crafting albums that were of a more acoustic nature, that maybe reflected Americana. Whatever he would have done, Kurt was incredibly talented and of course the greatest loss, beyond the personal loss to those that loved him, is the fact that we lost all that future music."

Kurt Cobain was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, along with the rest of NIRVANA, in 2014.
