Mickey Rooney Dies at 93

Originally posted 04/06/2014 11:15PM

Mickey Rooney, the supercharged child vaudevillian who grew up to become MGM's biggest star – despite barely standing over 5 feet tall – has died at the age of 93.

Rooney, who had been in ill health for some time, passed away on Sunday, TMZ reports. According to the Associated Press, he was surrounded by family at his North Hollywood home, police said. The Los Angeles County Coroner's office said Rooney died a natural death.

A genuine showbiz legend whose career, like his personal life, was often likened to a roller-coaster, Rooney was multi-talented, eight-times married and many times written off, only to land back on his feet again and again. And while many of his personal tales were fanciful – Mickey Mouse was not named after him, despite his claim – movie fans adored Rooney and respected filmmakers idolized his sizeable gifts, which were sometimes likened to genius.

Kurt Cobain's Death, 20 Years Later: Photos, Art and a Video Tour of His Childhood Home

Originally posted 04/05/2014 08:15AM

Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on April 5, 1994.

The Nirvana frontman's suicide was an epochal event for most of Generation X and has resurfaced in the news recently with newly released photographs of the singer's death scene.

But Cobain continues to live on through his music. As long as there are musicians, there will be new interpretations of Nirvana songs, and as long as there are young people, there will be an appreciation for Cobain's raw pathos and deft hand with melody.

To commemorate his life are these photos – including art Cobain did as a child – and the video above.

The photos are from Life's new tribute volume, Remembering Kurt Cobain: 20 Years Later, which is now available on newsstands and in bookstores everywhere.

The video is from journalist and Nirvana fan Dave Seminara, who takes viewers through the Aberdeen, Wash., home where Cobain spent most of his youth.
