Danny Goldberg, who has released a book about his time with the Nirvana frontman, revealed he was thinking about other projects.
Kurt Cobain was thinking of pursuing solo projects outside of Nirvana, according to his former manager.
5 April marks 25 years since the death of The Smells Like Spirit singer, and Danny Goldberg has just released a book on the frontman, Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain, in which he discusses his memories of the late grunge icon.
Now, in an interview with The Independent, the band's former manager has suggested that Cobain was curious about exploring other projects and had arranged to record with R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, but didn't show.
Goldberg mused: “I think he would’ve found different ways of expressing himself, sometimes with the band and sometimes not.”
Goldberg previously revealed that Cobain was aware of what a good singer his drummer bandmate Dave Grohl was, telling The Washington Post: "Kurt just said to me, ‘I don’t think you realise how good a singer Dave is, but I hear him singing harmonies every night.’
"It was like he was really doing it so I would know this because there was this very fraternal side of him and a sweet side of him, but also it had a touch of envy in it. I mean he was competitive"
