Frances Bean Cobain is the daughter of rock and roll icon and Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain, and bad girl musician Courtney Love. She's about the same age Cobain was when he made his first album, 22, so Rolling Stone interviewed Frances Bean Cobain to hear more about her life, ambitions, and memories of her father.
In the interview, Cobain talks about her father, his life, and the documentary she wrote and produced about him. "It's very weird how genes are," Cobain told RS reporter David Fricke. "Dave [Grohl], Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear] came over to a house where I was living. It was the first time [the ex-Nirvana members] had been together in a long time. And they had what I call the "K. C. Jeebies," which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they're looking at a ghost."
Cobain looks eerily like her father in the Rolling Stone cover story. She stands inside of a room, that's not definitively indoor or outdoor, and looks towards the sky. Her black dress and blood-smeared arms with flowers in one hand blends both wicked and whimsy. She looks like a beautiful gothic ballerina with her dark hair, ivory skin and pointed toe. It's absolutely stunning, but also hard not to squint your eyes to see the similarities she has with her dad.
