I'm not sure about that, I've been contemplating that. They'd probably be divorced, I dunno. What do you think?

Doesn't it depend upon at which point history diverges? You could also end up with Arseface.

I hope that if he had lived, the arc of his musical career would've included saxophones (maybe a recorded, full-length jam session with fellow Seattleite Kenny G?).

It's such a seedy, hopeful instrument.

i think he would have quit music and drugs and became a stuntman/DARE style public speaker. and ironically, like DARE, would just drive more kids to do drugs.

but he'd look badass in his evel knievel style stuntman outfit.

and he and courtney would have gotten divorced and his rebound would be a recently divorced (or possibly widowed) gwen stefani. thus marking the first time kurt cobain stole something from gavin rossdale.

kurt - 1, gavin - 4643543.

@12, and knowing courtney she would probably do the opposite (i.e. hook up with gavin) to get back at kurt, which would make for some hilariously awkward custody battles.

If Kurt had lived, he would have died of a heroin overdose.

You think he'd still have that same haircut? Or do you have to keep it so people know who he's supposed to be?
