John La Briola of the Cleveland Scene caught up with Eyes Adrift frontman Curt Kirkwood, who talked about how during the last two decades, the entire group has seen a number of friends and musical colleagues die well before their time: Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, the Minutemen’s D. Boon, Morphine’s Mark Sandman, the Replacements’ Bob Stinson, Sublime’s Brad Nowell — the list goes on. But according to Kirkwood, grief and calamity did not shape the group. “We didn’t get together because of our mutual tragedies,” Kirkwood says. “This sh** just keeps happening, whether you like it or not. You can’t be dragged down by it either. There’s no fu**ing way you can get around something like the genius of Cobain — and then he shoots himself. It’s not like a phenomenon that Kurt Cobain shot himself … But this isn’t ‘Survivor, Part II’. This is reality. We don’t sit around and talk about it.” Clevescene.com has since removed the article.
