8 April 1994; Seattle radio station KXRX breaks the news that a body has been found in the Seattle home of Kurt Cobain. 2 days later a candlelit vigil is held outside the EMP Centre in Seattle where thousands of young fans turn up to mourn their hero; the organisers play a recording of Kurt's suicide note read out by Courtney Love. Kurt honoured Neil Young in his final note by quoting the words "Better to burn out than to fade away."
