Hole Guitarist Claims Cobain Recorded Solo Album Before Suicide


Former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson claims that Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain recorded an entire album's worth of solo material prior to committing suicide in 1994.

Speaking about Cobain's solo album with TV station Fuse, Erlandson said: "He was headed in a direction that was really cool. It would have been his 'White Album'. That's really what he was going towards, a solo album but working with different people."

He continued: "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. He was cut short. Who knows where this music would have gone?"

Erlandson is unsure about whether or not these recordings will ever surface. "I'm not in control of things. I just wish something would come together. I think the fans would be a lot happier. If nobody ever hears those songs, except for like three people, then that's the way it goes. I heard some talk about somebody putting together some raw, rough acoustic thing."
