30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto has once again combined his musical and theatrical skills, this time in a tribute to Kurt Cobain. In a post to his official blog, Leto showed off a video in which he performs several Nirvana songs dressed to look like the late grunge icon.
"I heard today was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. 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 gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible," he wrote in a post that accompanied the video.
He adds, "Thanks for that. This made me recall a short piece of film I shot 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 Leto offers up a performance of "Rape Me" and "Pennyroyal Tea." The video is currently circulating the web.
Frank Turner recently took the time to talk with Alternative Addiction about working with Rich Costey and how people interpret music.
