Kurt Cobain was working on solo album before death
Former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson has claimed that the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain had recorded an album's worth of demo material before his death in 1994.
Erlandson explained to US TV station Fuse "[Kurt] was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his White Album".
He continued "That's really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people. I was really excited about some of the stuff he was working on. I got to see him play it in front of me. That's why I was really sad [when he died]. I was like, ‘Oh man, not only are you cutting off a life, but a message to the world, a musical path is just left with ... Bush and all this other stuff [laughs]. He was cut short. Who knows where the music would have gone".
Erlandson was hopeful the demos would eventually be released saying "I'm not in control of things. I just wish something would come together".
Over the weekend Erlandson reunited with the original mid 90's Hole line-up, performing in New York for the first time in 15 years.
