Seether frontman Shaun Morgan says Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain was his ‘rock god‘ growing up.

Appearing on BBC’s The Rock Show, Morgan said rock music was hard to come by growing up in South Africa – until a friend gave him a copy of Nirvana’s Nevermind.

He said “That music was so powerful to me as a child that I didn’t feel like I was alone anymore” – and that after Cobain’s death in 1994 “I really felt like I’d lost a friend and a voice“.
