Goldberg was at a book signing in Los Angeles and denied theories about the idea that Cobain was murdered.

To explain his statements further, he brought up private investigator Tom Grant who worked on the Soaked in Bleach documentary that supported the conspiracy theories to Cobain’s death.

“I met Tom Grant once, once was enough… He gave me why he thought this was very suspicious,” he continued. “And I said to him, ‘Don’t you think the Seattle police department would investigate this? It’s kind of front-page news, and they’re under a lot of scrutiny.”

He also continued about Grant’s accusations were questionable, especially his idea that Cobain’s widow Courtney Love was involved with the police force.

“I don’t think they would even let her into a police station, especially in those days,” Goldberg said. “I just feel like that was enough for me. And combined with having seen him the week before, knowing the condition he was in, and I know Krist Novoselic shares this view. It’s just my unalterable opinion.”

“People are in pain …. There is no answer to why some people kill themselves and others don’t,” he also said. “You can’t always do something. But I understand tht people, who are at a distance and in pain, look for explanations and are vulnerable to bullshit artists.”

You can listen to Goldberg talk about the entire thing in a video below.

Goldberg worked with Nirvana from 1990 to 1994. The beginning of Goldberg’s career with Nirvana was before the band was even close to becoming cultural icons. He was with them when Nevermind changed the alt-rock sphere forever.

He was also there for Cobain’s relationship and marriage to Love and the birth of their daughter, Frances Bean.

Goldberg was also there for Cobain’s battle with addiction and eventual death by suicide that shocked the world. He goes into detail about Cobain’s legacy that still resonates with music lovers today.

The book was released almost 25 years to the date of Cobain’s death.

On that date this year,  the Used teamed up with Anthony Green to honor the late icon at Emo Nite.
