“It’s better to burn out than to fade away.” This is what Kurt Cobain wrote in his final letter before he shot himself. Being a creative soul is a responsibility. A gift and a curse to feel so deeply that the pain ignites an unbearable fire inside that can only be doused through art.
A man dies, but his memory remains. Music has been a part of my being since I can remember. Lyrics, Rhythm, and music make me feel like I am part of something bigger than myself, something divine. It breaks my heart to know that these legends won’t be playing live near my city anymore, and they won’t be making any more songs for us to forget this world and live a little.
