What else could I say?
Everyone was gay.

–“All Apologies” – Nirvana

Nirvana was one of my favorite bands in high school. All those alternative punk bands of the late 80’s and early 90’s were a perfect soundtrack to my angry teenagerhood. This old interview, posted recently to the web site of one of my local radio stations, fascinated me. His pain, both physical and emotional, and the fact that he briefly questioned his orientation, spoke volumes about his music and why so many people connected to it. Maybe also why his life ended so tragically and so soon.
