Kurt Cobain's Suicide Note Quote Shocked Neil Young

(Classic Rock) Neil Young has admitted Kurt Cobain's suicide note, in which the Nirvana star quoted lyrics from the Canadian's song Hey Hey My My (Into the Black), "f***ed with" him.

Cobain shot himself in 1994 after failing to deal with the trappings of success. A piece of paper found by his body included the words "It's better to burn out than to fade away."

On hearing the tragic musician had quoted the line from his 1979 track, Young says he was deeply shaken. In his autobiography Waging Heavy Peace he writes: "When he died and left that note, it struck a deep chord inside of me. It f***ed with me.

"I, coincidentally, had been trying to reach him. I wanted to talk to him. Tell him only to play when he felt like it."
