Jared Leto of 30 Seconds To Mars posted a video online yesterday to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain. In the somewhat bizarre video Leto dresses as Cobain and covers 2 classic Nirvana songs.
Jared Leto prefaced the video on his blog:
“I heard today (April 5) was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago,” he wrote. “Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him.”
He added: “I shot a short piece of film when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now.”
In the video he covers Nirvana’s “Pennyroyal Tea” & “Rape Me”.
