His daughter Frances message was particularly special as she shared two home photos of her dad that had never been publically released before.
Happy Birthday to an angel.
One of Kurt watching her as an infant, lovingly, as she reaches towards an inflatable kiddie pool in what looks like a backyard party. The second is of Kurt in a Breeders T-shirt, looking directly down the barrel of the lense.
Frances captioned the images: "I hope they don’t have the internet wherever you are. I feel like that would be counterproductive. Regardless, Happy Birthday to an angel."
Courtney Love also shared a sweet photo of the two with the caption: "happy birthday baby god I miss you."
Other icons shared messages of love for Kurt on his birthday including William Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins, Billie Joe from Greenday and Marilyn Manson.
