Who were the people you really loved/admired when you were 13 or so?
I was that age in 97/98 and my choices were pretty typical of the era- Kurt Cobain/Courtney Love/Trent Reznor
Kurt Cobain still seems like he was a very decent person. Courtney and Trent not so much, but then they’ve had more time to disappoint everyone with their personal failings.
Every so often I think about how lucky it was that I latched on to Nirvana, rather than say Guns ‘n’ Roses, at that age. I got a load of great music and book recommendations from reading old Nirvana interviews, and an early introduction to issues of equality.
