Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl revealed he hasn’t seen the Kurt Cobain documentary entitled Cobain: Montage of Heck. Grohl told the Washington Post that seeing Cobain as a child may make him sad. “All the footage of him as a child, I think that might make me sad. Then the dark stuff at the end I think would bum me out, the Foo Fighters frontman stated. Grohl is not featured in the documentary, due to his hectic schedule during the time the film’s interviews were taking place. “We first approached Dave about an interview in April 2014. Dave did sit for an in three weeks after I completed the film. He was great, but unfortunately it was too late for inclusion,” Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen revealed.
The death of Cobain has come under question by former Seattle police chief Norm Stamper. Stamper believes the rocker may have been murdered, and so he wants the case to be reinvestigated. “If in fact Kurt Cobain was murdered as opposed to having committed suicide, and it was possible to learn that- shame on us for not doing that. That was in fact our responsibility,” Stamper stated. He now insists the Seattle investigators should look into the behaviors of key individuals who had a motive to see Cobain dead. The former police chief’s comments were made in the film Soaked In Bleach, which was directed by Benjamin Statler. “If we did not get it right the first time, we damn well better get it right the second time. I would tell you right now I were the Chief of Police, I would reopen this investigation,” Stamper said.
Last year, there were rumors circulating that the Seattle Police Department was reopening the case regarding the death of Cobain. The rumors were fueled after it was reported the Seattle police department developed never-before-seen photos from the crime scene that were allegedly in an evidence vault. A police spokeswoman denied Cobain’s death was being reinvestigated, “No change, no developments, no new leads. Our detective reviewed the case file anticipating questions surrounding the closed Cobain case as the 20-year anniversary approaches.” Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994 in his Seattle, Washington home.
