At this time, Kurt had been struggling with heroin addiction and had been diagnosed with bronchitis and laryngitis. The show ended with an encore of “Heart Shaped Box,” and you can hear the song tearing apart His voice. You can hear the pain he’s in—not only emotionally, but physically, as it sounds like his voice is about to snap in half.
Three days after the concert—while recovering from his illness—Cobain was taken to the hospital after overdosing on a combination of champagne and Rohypnol. And by the end of March he was back home in and out of rehab.
Almost a month later to the day of the last show Kurt Cobain passed away by taking his own life
His bandmates Novoselic, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear didn’t play together again until 2014 when Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Four female rockers – Joan Jett, Lorde, Sonic Youth vocalist-bassist Kim Gordon and St. Vincent – joined the living members of Nirvana to sing four songs by the grunge pioneers at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jett sang “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Gordon took on “Aneurysm,” St. Vincent performed “Lithium” and Lorde covered “All Apologies” with bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear after the band was inducted by R.E.M’s Michael Stipe.
