Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1988, he started the grunge band Nirvana. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.
Kurt Cobain was an amazing artist as a whole. So many guitarists around his time did it solely for the money and fame. Kurt out his heart into his music and his ability to sing and play in different rhythms. Listen to mtv unplugged and hear the most beautiful music I've ever heard. Definitely deserves top five. Hendrix, Slash, Cobain, Santana, Van Halen for an accurate top five.
44? Seriously? Come on.. He is the guitarist of one of the best bands of all time.. Just listen to smells like teen spirit or you know you're right to believe it.. He isn't better than slash or kirk hammet or jimmy page.. But he is top 10 for sure!
This list is bs, kurt needs to be way up there, when you have multiple articles, and fans round the world embracing how he changed the face of music... His look, his sound, his mind, that voice, he was the ultimate.. No one else like him period!
Kurt Cobain was very influenced by artists like The Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth who reveled in the beauty of distortion and feedback. Which is probably why he's not a top 10-er: his unorthodox musical taste
He was just great. I mean, come on. Who hasn't heard of him? Nirvana was one of the best bands ever, and he made it perfect with his singing and guitar skills. KURT COBAIN FOREVER. NIRVANA FOREVER!
How good a guitarist is isn't determined by how fast he can play. It is the creative level, the tunes that he can produce that makes him what he is. This is why kurt is one of the best guitarists in the world.
R.I. P Kurt. Amazing guitarist. Died too soon. He deserves to be higher o the scale than this guys he is one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
Kurt is an absolutely amazing guitarist who should be in the top 5 because he is awesome. Not many guitarists are better than Kurt Cobain (only Slash and Hendrix should be above him on this chart). He ROCKS!
Hey... Kurt was a Wonder... He always said that he's a bad guitar player, but who else can do the things he did? It's so simple and cool at the same time and his songs never get old
I think these guy must be on top 10. No doubt. Hey, he play guitar while he sing and it's sound/voice (guitar/vocal) is just awesome!
The fact that he played with crappy guitars that where right handed strung upside down and that he played amazingly is astonishing that he is not top one hundred
Definitely my favourite. Always kept it simple! Jimi & Slash beat him only because of there awesome solos that they alway do. Rock on Kurt! RIP!
Not in a "that was amazing" way. In a way that was influential, say what you will about Kurt, but there is no denying be did great great things for rock and roll
Shame to all rock listeners kurt's guitar skills have their own different class and nothing can compare to them he should in top 3
Kurt Cobain should be 19th I seriously think you voters are mad, listen to his songs, than talk, even though I admit Slash is good
Kurt was great song writer and definitely a superb guitarist. In his style of music he is the best guitarist.R.I.P. kURT COBAIN.
Condone deserves better I'm a metal head but Kurt changed the world man no one can take that from him
In my opinion, this guys a legend. He saved rock and introduced a whole new genre of music! He should be much higher on the list!
The best! I think he deserves 1st place :) listen to Smells like teen spirit or The man who sold the world! He's one of the greatest!
NO Kirk sucks and he is fortunate to even be here
Any body thinks he sucks you suck kurt has been my hero since I was 4
KURT COBAIN! ONE OF THE BEST.. He should be ranked at least in the top 20..
Just to entwine vocals and melody he is amazing, why is Eric Clapton behind buckethead? Laugh out loud seriously
Maybe not the best... But the one that touched my soul
One of musics great masters just listen to any Nevermind song and you will see what a genius he is
