Nirvana have responded to rumors that lead singer Kurt Cobain is still alive, after fans claimed that Peruvian singer Ramiro Saavedra is Kurt is disguise.
Almost 25 years since the band released their hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” remaining members of Nirvana added fuel to conspiracy theories that their frontman was still alive and living in Peru by saying, “It is true, Kurt is alive“.
He lives, essentially… Sort of, in the form of Peruvian singer Ramiro Saavedra.
Yes, the doppleganger performed a version of ‘Come As Your Are’ that was so convincing, fans (and the Daily Mail) believed that it was Kurt.
This prompted Nirvana’s official Facebook page to make the following statement:
“It is true, Kurt is alive. He needed time to learn to play the guitar with his right hand. Finding left-handed guitars is not easy.
We are so happy to have him back and forgive him for all of the sadness that we have held so deeply in our hearts.”
