Kurt Cobain, Michael Stipe has revealed he tried to save Kurt Cobain, offering to record a song together. The R.E.M. singer recently told Interview magazine that tried to get Cobain to “save his life.”
“[Cobain, Courtney Love, and REM] all knew each other,” said Stipe. “I approached him with this project as an attempt to avoid what would happen.”
He said: “I sent him a plane ticket and a driver, and turned the flight to the wall in the bedroom and the driver sat outside the house for 10 hours and not Kurt would not answer the phone.”
Stipe added. “Collaboration was calling me up as an excuse to get to this guy was in a very bad place.”
Stipe told Interview magazine asked the Nirvana singer to record a song with him to “take care of him.”
He says he “approached him to try to avoid what would happen” when Cobain was heavily into drugs.
Speaking to Christopher Bollen, Stipe said he knew that the leader of Nirvana, and, although they were not best friends.
“I knew he and his daughter. And Courtney [Love] came and stayed at my house. REM worked two records in Seattle and Peter Buck lived next to Kurt and Courtney.”
But the leader of REM denied the “mythology” that collaboration was a full album.
“I simply build a project to try to add Kurt mood. I sent a plane ticket and a driver, and turned the flight to the wall in the bedroom and the driver sat outside the house for 10 hours. Kurt would not and did not answer the phone. ”
Stipe was making a record in Miami at the time.
“I did not feel like it’s my place to get on the same plane and go to Seattle,” he continued.
“I was doing what I thought was the best thing to do at the time. And, you know, frankly I’m not great with heroin addicts. I tried heroin, but it was by accident. I’m not very good at that level substance abuse. “
