Former HOLE guitarist says Kurt Cobain worked on a solo album before his death

1 min read

In a recent interview with Fuse, former HOLE guitarist Eric Erlandson recalls that NIRVANA singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain was working on a solo album not long before his April 1994 suicide.

Erlandson elaborates:

[Kurt] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his White Album. That’s really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people. I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me. That’s why I was really sad [when he died]. I was like, ‘Oh man, not only are you cutting off a life, but a message to the world, a musical path is just left with … Bush and all this other stuff [laughs]. He was cut short. Who knows where the music would have gone.
