Where Kurt Cobain Lived in a Refrigerator Box

A really depressed area; he overcame a lot.

[Luke, 11/22/2015]

Kurt Cobain was poor for most of his short life. For a brief time, after he was kicked out of his parents' house at age 17, he lived in a refrigerator box in the small enclosed entryway to Dale Crover's house. Dale would later become the first drummer of Nirvana.
