Hole’s Kristen Pfaff – Rockers Who Died at Age 27
Only two months after Kurt Cobain committed suicide, the grunge legend’s widow and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love lost yet another important figure in her life. Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff, like Cobain, also suffered from heroin addiction, overdosing in 1994 at the age of 27.
Kristen was “bright, personable, wonderful … very, very talented, smart, and she always seemed to be in control of her circumstances,” her father, Norman Pfaff, told the Seattle Times the day after her death. “Last night she wasn’t.”
