“So, I went down to visit Kurt, I get there and he’s like cooking a little bit of leftovers of a frozen pizza and he split it with me. I was actually hungry, I was like, ‘Shit man, a frozen pizza, that’s awesome!’
“And about the same time the mail shows up at his door. And it’s a letter from ASCAP or BMI and it was a royalty check for radio play for – I remember specifically – ‘Blew’ and ‘About a Girl,’ and it was for $18.
“I was like, ‘Wow! You know, that’s awesome you got a royalty check.’ It wasn’t that much but still, it was probably more than what Kurt had in his pocket. At that point I was lucky if I had $5, $10 in my pocket, you know.
“So, we walk downtown to the bank and he cashed the check. And then we went to a local bar or whatever and got some pizza. I don’t remember. It was like by the 4th Ave Tavern in Olympia. We got pizza, played some pool and yeah, it was a good, a good memory.
“You know, hanging out with Kurt was just like that, pretty much – just hanging out with a friend. He was really a good guy. He was always, he had some video, or a song or something to show me that he’d been working on.”
