Cobain fan kills himself.
A KURT Cobain fan committed suicide - like the depressed rock star.
Music student Daniel Bassett, 19, hanged himself from his flat's stairs with his guitar lead.
He was taking antidepressants, upset over a split with his girlfriend and his parents' marriage breakup.
An inquest heard Daniel, who studied at Swansea Institute, was a huge fan of Nirvana singer Cobain, who shot himself dead in 1994 at just 27.
Flatmates invited him out for a night but he stayed in "to listen to music that reminded him of his parents".
They returned to find him dead. Pal Luc Frost said: "The night before he died I asked him if he was unhappy over his split with his girlfriend. He replied 'That is the least of my problems'."
His mother Anne, of Ilfracombe, Devon, said: "He was writing songs and looking forward to playing at a festival."
