Cobain showed a talent for music at an early age, he was always singing and he learned to play the piano by ear. His life changed at the age of nine when his parents divorced. Kurt became withdrawn from his family, and started to rebel.

At the age of 14 he was bought his first guitar by an uncle. He soon became obsessed with the instrument, learning to play Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.
