Michale Graves talks about Cobain influence

In a recent Live-Metal.Net interview, former Misfit Michale Graves talks about the Nirvana influence behind his upcoming release, Illusions Live / Viretta Park.

I was a huge Nirvana fan. A HUGE Kurt Cobain fan. One of my dreams was to be able to collaborate with him. I always wanted to jam with him.

Along the way, J.V. (Bastard) and I started to talk about tragic heroes and talking about whether or not or why Kurt Cobain would have killed himself or he didn't kill himself. Regardless of the fact, he is dead. We talked about how tragic that was and the effect that it had on us.

When we were on the West Coast, we sought out Viretta Park, when we made it to Seattle. It became this big, huge adventure. I was in high school when Nirvana came out, so when I listen to those songs, I am seventeen again. So being there in Viretta Park, there was so much nostalgia, sadness, and happiness that it had a huge effect on both of us.
