I decided to fly home.

And Kurt went to Rome, where he was

meeting Courtney Love, his wife.

Hi, I'm Tabitha Soren, with MTV News.

Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain

was hospitalized in a coma in Rome, Italy

on Friday morning...

I turn on the TV, and Kurt was being

wheeled away in an ambulance in Rome.

I went to the hospital with him, and I didn't

know what to do, because I thought,

"Do I say, this is Kurt Cobain,

take care of him right away, VIP,"

or do I say, "This is just some guy,

don't call the press"?

I finally went with, "This is Kurt Cobain, VIP.

Do something about it. "

Nirvana spokespeople reported

encouraging signs,

saying they've been told Kurt Cobain

was responding to his name,

opening his eyes,

and squeezing his wife's hand.

When he came home,

I remember talking to him on the phone,

and saying, "Hey man,

I don't want you to die, OK?"

And he was very apologetic,

"No, I'm sorry, it was a big mistake.

"I took these pills, I was drinking

this champagne and I was in Rome...

"It was, just a...

just made a mistake. "

It was really sad. I had a message

from Kurt, but I wasn't home.

And so whatever help he needed from me,

I couldn't help him.

And that was the last time

I ever talked to him or saw him.

When I found out that he had killed himself...

I was kind of numb.

I knew that it...

He was gone,

but I didn't know how to feel.

Kurt Cobain, a sweet and gifted man,

dead at the age of 27.

To Courtney Love,

one-year-old Frances Bean Cobain,

Dave Grohl, Kris Novoselic and Pat Smear,

our deepest sympathies.

Everybody knew Kurt was in a bad way,

but that's something

you never expect to happen.

When someone is that down and out

you still can't comprehend that they're

actually gonna commit suicide.

It was terrible.

After Kurt died, I didn't wanna play music.
