Letter: No judgements, just final peace for Kurt Cobain

Sir: Kurt Cobain was an impossibly shy man, intelligent and sensitive. No one has denied that he found fortune and fame hard to deal with. Yet the constant day-to- day harassment of newspapers, television, biographers, record company etc, could not have helped him come to terms with his new lifestyle. Cobain made millions of people happy with his music. In return those millions offered him an obviously miserable existence. We are all poorer for his loss, and we must share the blame.

Don't our favoured sons deserve something better than this? If not in life, then perhaps in death we may let him rest.

Yours faithfully,
