Just before he shot himself Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain was working on a solo album according to Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson who heard the tracks his friend was working on at the time.
“He 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. He was cut short. Who knows where this music would have gone?”
The collection of songs also included a cover version.
“There is one cover. I won’t say what it is, I don’t own the stuff. I just hope that one day it will be released for fans. It’s just so heart-breaking. It’s not surprising. It’s a very sweet, just touching song.”
Whether the album ever gets released is a moot point…
“I’m not in control of things. I just wish something would come together. I think the fans would be a lot happier. If nobody ever hears those songs, except for like three people, then that’s the way it goes. I heard some talk about somebody putting together some raw, rough acoustic thing.”
