We had written a story years ago about the last photo of Kurt Cobain alive taken on March 12, 1994 at Seattle Sea-Tac Airport. Thanks to a feelnumb.com reader (Andrew Davidson) who informed us of a recent photo that has surfaced that if proven true, would be the very last photo of Kurt Cobain alive. It was claims to have been taken in Seattle on March 26, 1994, 10 days before his death and the day after the infamous Cobain drug intervention.
The man in the photo with Cobain is Thor Lindsay, who was the executive producer of the Kurt Cobain/William S. Burroughs 1993 single “The Priest They Called Him”. Thor’s friend Christopher put the photo on Instagram on February 25, 2016 with the following explanation.
He later posted a color version of the photo and gave a bit more of an explanation promising more info:
The band The Dandy Warhols tweeted this on March 6, 2016 showing a larger version of the photo.

Let the debate begin, as fans on www.livenirvana.com are already on the case. Some fans are already claiming that Cobain looks too healthy in the photo, questioning the length of his hair and saying that the photo was most likely taken sometime in 1993. Weigh in and leave a comment.
