Kurt Cobain’s ex-girlfriend Tracy Marander discussed Kurt’s views on heroin prior to using in Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, stating that he mocked local users. “He used to make fun of some of the people who were using that, and said it was really stupid.” She added that she later found out he started using while they were dating, and that if she’d known, she would have talked him out of it.
She also discussed Cobain’s ambition when it came to Nirvana. “He was ambitious. he didn’t want to be in a bar band and play like that. He wanted to be a success.”
