Kurt Cobain will forever be sketched in our minds as the 20-something Nirvana frontman who pioneered the ‘90s grunge era. It’s hard to imagine what Cobain, who died at age 27 in 1994, would have looked like today ― Feb. 20, 2017 ― on what would have been his 50th birthday.
Many tributes poured in across social media on Monday to honor the late singer, but one in particular stood out.
His 24-year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, wrote a heartfelt handwritten note and posted it on Instagram.
“Today would’ve been your 50th birthday,” she said of her dad. “You are loved and you are missed. Thank you for giving me The GIFT of Life. Forever your daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.”
Frances Bean, who was recently tapped to be a part of Marc Jacobs’ 2017 spring/summer campaign, was 20 months old when her father died.
