Cobain fan kills himself.

Byline: By JAMES HARPER

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."

Verdict: Suicide.
