(Classic Rock) Nirvana's official Facebook page has poked fun at a Daily Mail story claiming fans were fooled into believing Kurt Cobain was still alive. The story centers on a supposed conspiracy theory that came about after a video showing Peruvian musician Ramiro Saavedra performing Come As You Are was shared online.

The Daily Mail says fans were struck by the resemblance between Saavedra and the late Nirvana frontman, as well as the similarities in their voices. But Saavedra plays the guitar right-handed - while Cobain was left-handed.

A statement on Nirvana's Facebook page reads: "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."

Some fans criticized the Facebook post, with one saying the page's administrator was "stupid and disrespectful" and another describing it as "f***ing horribly repulsive." Read more here.
