Published Feb 20, 2018Today would have marked Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's 51st birthday, and his widow Courtney Love and daughter Frances Bean Cobain have paid homage to the occasion on social media.
Love took to Instagram to share a message for her late husband. She posted a black-and-white photo of the couple, accompanied by the caption: "Happy birthday, baby. God, I miss you."
Frances Bean, meanwhile, wrote, "I hope they don't have the internet wherever you are. I feel like that would be counterproductive. Regardless, Happy Birthday to an angel."

Cobain died by suicide on April 5, 1994, at the age of 27. His body was found on April 8 in the room above the garage of his Seattle home. He suffered from depression and drug addiction prior to his death.
Last week, Frances Bean opened up about her own struggle with addiction, revealing that she has now been sober for two years.
