Two rather sad stories that I saw on Billboard today.
Kurt Cobain‘s childhood home in Aberdeen, Washington is up for sale. The 1,522 sq. ft. house is listed for $400,000. And the story says that the house contains items, like the dining room table, from when Kurt lived there.

There was also a story that two of Glen Campbell‘s grown children, Travis Campbell and Debby Campbell-Cloyd have filed a petition against Kim Campbell, who has been married to Glen for 32 years, because they don’t like the way she has been dealing with his medical and financial issues.

Finally, Spring Training has begun, so my thoughts are turning to baseball. So I was sadden to see the passing of Alex Johnson. He was one of the best hitters in baseball for a short time in the 70’s, but he also had a tumultuous career for whatever reasons troubled him. Johnson played only one season for my Cleveland Indians in 1972 and it probably was his wrong year statistically. His .239 batting average was nearly 100 points lower than this average just two seasons earlier (.329) – I looked this up; I didn’t have it memorized as you perhaps might have guessed.
