Melvins’ Buzz Osborne (and friend to the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana) watched the new HBO Documentary, “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” twice and he’s saying, “90% of (it) is bullshit.”
In a blog post on The Talkhouse, Osborne tore the flick apart, saying that he, “found it to be mostly misguided fiction.”
More of Osborne’s writing from The Talkhouse:
“I know the whole “I tried to fuck a fat retard” story is complete bullshit. Not even an inkling of truth. That’s too good a story to have gone this long without me hearing about it, especially if, as he suggests, the girl’s father freaked out about it at the high school. In that small-town shit-hole, exciting news of that nature would have been common knowledge before the sun set. It never happened. And the trying-to-kill-himself-on-the-train-tracks story is bullshit as well. It never happened either. There it is, though, told in a recording of Kurt’s own voice so it must be true…right? Wrong.
Kurt also told me there was absolutely nothing wrong with his stomach. He made it up for sympathy and so he could use it as an excuse to stay loaded. Of course he was vomiting — that’s what people on heroin do, they vomit. It’s called “vomiting with a smile on your face.”
