He began singing when he was two and at four, he started playing the piano and wrote his first song about a trip to the park. Cobian started learning to play the guitar at age 14 when his uncle gave him a guitar as a birthday gift.
Cobian changed from a loving and caring child when he rebelled and withdrew after his parents divorced at age eight. His indolent behavior grew even worse as he showed disrespect towards adults and bullied other children at school or in the neighborhood. As a musician, he publicly resented sexism, racism and homophobia and in display of that played at a gay rights benefit show. These were early signs of bipolar disorder which he was believed to have been diagnosed with later.
As a child, he was believed to have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and believed to have suffered bipolar disorder as an adult. This could account for his rebellion, aggression and drug abuse. He also endured poor self image and self consciousness sometime in his life.

He had an overdose of heroin once when preparing for a show.

He also consumed large amounts of alcohol and any kind of solvent. He had his first dose of heroin from a dealer which he used for some years and developed addiction as a result. His drug usage was attributed to emotional imbalance caused by a severe stomach condition he suffered. Cobian attributed his drug use to his stomach condition, but comparing with people believes it was as a result of suffering from bipolar disorder.
Cobian attempted suicide once when he locked himself up in a room with a gun and a pack of pills. He was later found dead in his home by an electrician with what is believed to be a suicide note.
