A concrete sculpture of a guitar in memory of Kurt Cobain will be unveiled in Aberdeen on April 5, the 17th anniversary of the grunge singer’s death.
The ceremony will be at a park next to the Young Street Bridge which he mentioned in a song.
In addition to the guitar sculpture there will be a steel ribbon with the lyrics, “One more special message to go and then I’m done and I can go home” — from the song “On a Plain.”
In 2005, the fan-driven Kurt Cobain Memorial Foundation raised enough money to install a new sign telling visitors to “Come As You Are” below the “Welcome to Aberdeen” sign near the bluff in East Aberdeen. The phrase is the name of one of Nirvana’s most popular songs.
