Nirvana (Hardback)

By Gaar, Gillian G.
By Crisafulli, Chuck

Spawned in the intensely fertile music scene that blossomed in and around Seattle in the late 1980s, Nirvana instantly distinguished itself from the bulk of its peers by virtue of the singular passion that drove its leader, Kurt Cobain. Few were prepared for worldwide Nirvana-man...ia set off by the 1991 release of Nevermind. With the instantaneous success of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' the album stormed the charts. Their next album, In Utero, was the last studio recording released by Nirvana: the demons that made Cobain's writing so powerful took their toll: he took his own life less than a year later. Although the band released just five albums, Nirvana's influence is certain to be felt for many years to come: Nirvana, an unofficial publication, shows the multiple reasons behind that impact through the words of the band, their friends and their colleagues. Through interviews with those close to the band coupled with intensive archive research, the unique status this band occupies-as representatives of the time, and as timeless songwriters-will be revealed.
