Kurt Cobain was interested in recording a solo album of blues covers shortly before his death, Wipers guitarist Greg Sage? has claimed.

Speaking to NME as part of their tribute to Kurt Cobain on the 20th anniversary of the musician’s death, Sage said, “I heard from some people in [Kurt’s] camp in his circle that he wanted to come to Arizona and record at my studio, Zenorecords, and do an album of old blues covers. I thought that would be good for him personally, but how do you go from mega-million LP sales to an album of old blues covers from a corporate point of view? Two weeks later he was gone.”

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone report that the Seattle police department recently released new photos of Cobain’s death scene, drug paraphernalia and his suicide note in the lead up to the anniversary of Cobain’s death.

Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Michael Stipe on April 10 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
