Kurt Cobain of Nirvana
The melodic, weathered and astonishingly honest voice of his generation, Kurt Cobain changed the direction of rock with Nirvana's landmark 1991 album 'Nevermind.' Cobain struggled with success, depression and heroin addiction. He died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in April 1994 and was not discovered until several days later.
