    Kurt’s schoolfriend Buzz says people have forgotten he was “master of jerking your chain”
    The Melvins’ Buzz Osborne, who grew up with Nirvana icon Kurt Cobain in Aberdeen, Washington, has branded the biopic Montage Of Heck as “90% bullshit.”

    He’s poured scorn on some of the stories Cobain tells in video clips that appear inthe movie, and adds that the result adds to the mountain of misinformation shared about the late star.

    Osborne says via TheTalkhouse.com: “I went to high school with Kurt and was a big part of all the Nirvana guys’ lives before and after they became famous. We were good friends when they were all flat broke, long before they could buy big houses and cars with credit cards.

    “My band played with Nirvana at their last show. I was there for the beginning and I was there for the end, for the very good and the very bad.”

    He continues: “People need to understand that 90% of Montage of Heck is bullshit. Total bullshit. That’s the one thing no one gets about Cobain — he was a master of jerking your chain.”

    He cites the examples of Cobain claiming he “tried to fuck a fat retard,” saying: “That’s too good a story to have gone this long without me hearing about it. In that small-town shit-hole, exciting news of that nature would have been common knowledge before the sun set. It never happened.

    “And the trying-to-kill-himself-on-the-train-tracks story is bullshit as well. It never happened either. There it is, though, told in a recording of Kurt’s own voice so it must be true. Right? Wrong.

    “Kurt also told me there was absolutely nothing wrong with his stomach. He made it up for sympathy and so he could use it as an excuse to stay loaded. Of course he was vomiting — that’s what people on heroin do. It’s called ‘vomiting with a smile on your face.’”

    Osborne slates the moviemakers for failing to fact-check the things Cobain and Courtney Love said on video. He continues: “Not a lot of what’s out there about Kurt is the truth anyway. But no one seems to care.

    “I suppose this movie will be interesting for Nirvana completists, because it certainly reinforces their already twisted view of the man. I found it to be mostly misguided fiction.”

    But he finishes: “They did a fantastic job of showing what a depressing shit-hole Aberdeen really was and still is. For that, I salute them!"

    The story of the retarded girl came straight from his journals, which were released to sale when I was a sophomore in college (2002-2003). Ive known about the the story for 12 years; its not exactly new.

    Whether or not the story is true, nobody will ever know. I dont particularly see Cobain, however, making up stories in his private journal, just in case he becomes a fabled icon of tragic genius, whos money grubbing wife found it necessary to publsh them after his untimely death.

    Ha. I was actually thinking about that.

    The same deal with the railroad tracks story, and the stomach issues. Who know if any of it is true, but he did write about these topics in his journal.

    Montage of Heck could, potentially, be 100% bullshit, should Cobain opt to lie in his own journals; therein lies the issue of a posthumous documentarty. But, I dont see Osborne being any more credible.

    Totally this. Using it as a free promo, saying "Hey, my band has influenced Nirvana, and Ive been part of their sound from the first note, to the last note. I know the truth about everything....by the way, were touring, so if you like Nirvana, keep your eye out."

    Outside of the brief period when Montage of Heck was released, do you really hear about him all that much?
