Annual Kurt Cobain Day declared in Nirvana singer’s hometown

The birthday of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain will be celebrated with an annual “Kurt Cobain Day” in his hometown of Aberdeen, Washington.

KXRO Aberdeen reports Mayor Bill Simpson says the city will proclaim February 20th as “Kurt Cobain Day.”

“Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain,” says Simpson, “and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”

The proclamation gives special recognition to the efforts of the Aberdeen Museum, Tori Kovach, Denny Jackson, Randi Hubbard, and other volunteers who have worked to recognize Kurt locally.

Cobain and Nirvana are being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in April, along with KISS, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt.

The induction ceremony will be held at New York’s Barclays Center, marking the first time the general public will be able to attend the ceremony in NYC. HBO will record the event for broadcast in May.
