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.

Kate O'Mara, Former Dynasty Star, Dies at 74

Originally posted 03/30/2014 11:05AM

British actress Kate O'Mara, best known for her role on the 1980s soap opera Dynasty, died Sunday at the age of 74, her agent said.

Phil Belfield said O'Mara died in a nursing home in southern England after a short illness.

The actress, who began her television career in the 1960s, became a household name for playing Cassandra "Caress" Morrell, sister to Joan Collins' Alexis Colby, on Dynasty.

In Britain she is often remembered for her role in Triangle – a soap opera set aboard a North Sea ferry that is often cited as the worst piece of British television.

She also appeared in the original run of British series Doctor Who and BBC drama Howards' Way. In the 1990s she starred in the comedy show Absolutely Fabulous with Joanna Lumley.

More recently she appeared in a 2012 stage adaptation of Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile.

She is survived by her sister, actress Belinda Carroll.
