Afforded the kind of access a journalist can only dream of, Andy Bollen gives fans a new story focusing on the real Kurt Cobain--not the angst-ridden, troubled rock star of folklore, the kind and humorous Kurt the world seldom sawWhen Nirvana first exploded onto the music scene in 1991, few people could have predicted their subsequent global impact, or that the band's lead singer Kurt Cobain would be transformed into one of music's most enduring and iconic figures. As drummer for the British group Captain America, one of the two support bands on Nirvana's Nevermind UK tour, Andy Bollen had a ringside seat at the exact moment that Nirvana went massive. Afforded intimate access, Bollen wrote his own personal diary in Nirvana's dressing room, where he spoke candidly to Cobain--from his fears of losing original fans to his love of the Bay City Rollers. He saw firsthand how Nirvana worked, the relationships that made them tick, and the dynamic that made them one of the great bands. This is a warm, affectionate, funny, and, at times, brutally honest account, written by a guy on the periphery, perfectly positioned to observe. Drawing on the diaries he kept at the time, the book brings to life a pivotal moment in rock history, making it a must-read for Nirvana fans and lovers of iconic rock stories. The author also includes his own photographs which have never been seen before.--Provided by the publisher.
