Billie Joe talks about Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain's death 20 years ago was a very significant point in musical history. Nirvana was one of the largest bands in the world at the time, and 20 years later is still regarded as one of the pioneers in bringing a new style of rock to the mainstream. To mark the sad anniversary, the Associated Press talked with some musicians about Kurt and Nivarna's influence. Here's what Billie Joe said,

"You know, the guy just wrote beautiful songs," Armstrong said. "When someone goes that honestly straight to the core of who they are, what they're feeling, and was able to kind of put it out there, I don't know, man, it's amazing. I remember hearing it when 'Nevermind' came out and just thinking, we've finally got our Beatles, this era finally got our Beatles, and ever since then it's never happened again. That's what's interesting. I was always thinking maybe the next 10 years. OK, maybe the next 10 years, OK, maybe. ... That was truly the last rock 'n' roll revolution"


Check out the full piece, which includes quotes from other artists like Neil Young, Beck and Arcade Fire's Win Butler.
