A theory earlier this week suggested the frontman is still alive and now playing the guitar right-handed.
Nirvana’s official Facebook page have responded to the latest internet conspiracy theory that suggests frontman Kurt Cobain is still alive, over 20 years after his death. The bizarre theory emerged online this week after a video circulated of a Peruvian singer who bore a resemblance to Cobain, performing ‘Come As You Are’.

“It is true, Kurt is alive,” the page wrote. “He needed time to learn to play the guitar with his right hand. Finding left-handed guitars is not easy. We are so happy to have him back and forgive him for all of the sadness that we have held so deeply in our hearts.”
Cobain was found dead on April 8 1994 at his home in Seattle, Washington. His death was officially ruled as a suicide by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. However speculation and theories from fans about the circumstances surrounding his passing have continued ever since.
