New Footage Of Kurt Cobain Meeting The Buzzcocks Backstage February 6, 1994

Kurt Cobain loved The Buzzcocks.  They actually supported Nirvana during their last tour in 1994.  Steve Diggle recalls Kurt asking him, "Will you come and play Europe with us, we're doing all these stadiums?"  Diggle explains, "So we did Portugal and France and Spain and everything. It was like the last 11 days or so, and he was kind of okay. But it was weird, there was about 50 people working for them, all these people putting up lights and computers and everything.

Here's Kurt on stage during the tour wearing a Buzzcocks beanie on February 25, 1995 Milan, Italy…

This video of Kurt's first meeting with The Buzzcocks just surfaced.  It took place backstage at their first show supporting Nirvana at Pavilhão do Grupo Dramático e Sportivo de Cascais Portugal, Febuary 6, 1994.

I don't know what he was asked but Kurt says something about Beastie Boys, Smashing Pumpkins and The Breeders at around 4:45.  Diggle added that Kurt was nice guy but "He seemed to be dealing with a lot of pressure."
