Tell us your memories of Nirvana, grunge era, alternative scene



It’s been two decades since the death of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, a music legend not only in his home state of Washington, but around the world.

With Nirvana’s upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame coming in April, we’d would like to hear from locals about their memories of the grunge era, the alternative scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s and how the music of Nirvana has resonated in their lives to this day.

Do you have any favorite tracks from that time that you still play today? Are you a younger music fan who is just discovering “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “About a Girl,” or other classic songs? Do you remember when you found out Cobain was dead at age 27?

How did the music inspire, touch or intrigue you, and has your musical taste changed with time?

We’ll share your memories and thoughts in an April 6 story. Email by March 16.
