I always wondered about this watch that Kurt Cobain wore. Here’s some information we have gathered so far… Kurt started wearing the “Tom Peterson” promotional watch made in Hong-Kong at the beginning of 1993. Tom Peterson was a retailer, pitchman and local television celebrity from Portland, Oregon.
We did this story not too long ago about Kurt Cobain’s Sister Kimberly “Kim” Cobain. In doing that story, we noticed that Kurt was also a big brother of two other half-siblings as well. He has a half-brother from his father Don’s second marriage born in 1979 named Chad Cobain and also has a little sister Breanne O’Connor from his mother Wendy’s second marriage. It has been written that Kurt adored his little sister and was very close to her. There are even some photos of the two of them together.
In a recent interview, Courtney Love stated that in 1993, Kurt Cobain turned down an offer from Quentin Tarantino to play a small roll in the classic movie Pulp Fiction.
