Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s legacy lives on thanks to his only daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. Here’s what you need to know about Frances. This April will mark 28 years since Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain died. The legendary rockstar died at age 27 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, after years of struggling with drug addiction and depression. Kurt left behind his wife, Hole frontwoman Courtney Love, 57, and their daughter Frances Bean Cobain, 29. Frances was not even 2 years old when her famous father tragically passed. She’s since grown into a talented and inspiring adult, though she’s had her fair share of troubles. In Feb. 2018, Frances marked 2 years of sobriety on Instagram.
