He is survived by his wife, Susan Schneider, and three children, Zelda, 25, Zachary, 31, and Cody, 22.
Cobain – the daughter of Kurt Cobain, who took his own life, aged 27, in 1994 – tweeted in response to Zelda’s tribute to her father, a quote from French novel The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
"You have such an incredibly beautiful soul," tweeted Cobain. "I love you but you already knew that. Wherever, whenever u need me I'll be there."

Williams was known for his roles in Good Morning, Vietnam Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, Good Will Hunting, Mrs Doubtfire, Hook and Jumanji.
Barack Obama led tributes to the late actor yesterday, describing him as “one of a kind”.
“He made us laugh. He made us cry,” said Obama. “He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most - from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalised on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin's family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.”
Other high-profile names to have paid their respects include Steven Spielberg, Steve Martin, Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Stiller and Jared Leto.
His children have also published a statement, describing their “immeasurable loss” of their “father and best friend”.
“He was always warm, even in his darkest moments,” said Zelda.
“While I'll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there's minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions.”
