Another music conspiracy theory. Although this one doesn't have very much evidence.

The author also claims he is being hounded by the lawyers for Rivers Cuomo and Courtney Love.

I let my opinion known on this one.

Zap, that first link is not working. Can you perhaps check the URL and repost? Either that, or summarize the article for me? Thanks. (Sorry, never heard of Rivers Cuomo. Any relation to Mario?)

Rivers Cuomo is the lead singer of the band Weezer ("Buddy Holly" "El Scorcho" "Hashpipe" etc.). AFAIK, he and Mario are not related

From the front page:

quote:
There are plenty of theories floating around about the circumstances surrounding the death of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, most say he was murdered or simply killed himself. However neither of these theories address the fact that Kurt Cobain is in fact still alive, not only is he still alive but he has been recording music and releasing hit albums since 1994! This site is part of a mission to uncover the truth behind "Kurt Cobain" and reveal that Kurt has stayed in the public eye without anyone even noticing as Weezer front man "Rivers Cuomo".!
Nobody noticed because Rivers Cuomo isn't Kurt Cobain!

He is not the singer of Weezer because he has been busy the last several years making an album with Tupac.

I'd sooner believe Tupac Shakur is still alive and making music. Since his autopsy picture is at celebritymorgue.com, we have the proof he's not.

Probably the rumour came about because they look marginally similar, and Rivers Cuomo is incredibly press shy ... he doesn't like to give interviews, etc.

lil "obviously to cover up that he used to be Kurt Cobain" orphan

Sometime in October 1998 the band Weezer played an underground show under the name Goat Punishment.This show consisted of mostly Nirvana "covers" the similarities in The vocals are shocking.The guitar riffs and tone are not so close however.But this is obviously due to the fact that "Kurt" wrote these songs left handed and when performing as Rivers had to make the adjustments to a standard right handed guitar. Below are Mp3s of this very show so you can listen and judge for yourself.
And so the fact that kurt was left handed, and rivers is right handed goes from discounting the theory, to backing it because it explains why when the band did covers the guitars are different.

*SIGH* How many times must I tell people?

Kurt Cobain is DEAD. He was murdered at the bequest of Tupac Shakur and Eminem (then Marshall Mathers) in an attempt to draw people away from the grunge movement, thereby opening the doors for white rap and getting people back into gangsta rap. The triggerman, it has been proven, was P-Diddy, then going by the name of "Smack Daddy Combs," hired by Shakur at the behest of Jennifer Lopez.

Kurt Cobain is part of the Seattle curse that killed Jimmy Hendrix, Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee, Elvis and Ray Charles. Ray Charles dying in the 1970s, and replaced by a robot.
