    When Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994, it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it.

    Richard says: "Great story - missing chapter 12"
    "The Dark side of Kurt Cobain"

    Where does Heavier than Heaven rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The performance was really captivating It was really hard to hit the pause button, Addicting as hell and Im not a big fan of the author so I credit that to the performance of Lloyd James great narrator.


    What other book might you compare Heavier than Heaven to and why?

    It is similar to the 331/3 of the In Utero Album because of the stories behind the songs and in the studio as well as live on stage. Heavier than Heaven is a more in depth version of the 331/3 book of In Utero both great Rock Reads!!


    What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He really brings the characters to life!! At first it was a little akward I thought but then Lloyd really got into the flow and his voice became this neutral character that was telling this story with great conviction.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes very addictive only took me three days!


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Nirvana Fan It's an absolute must read!! Even if your not a fan and you like a good biography buy it!! you will find this entertaining especially if you were around during Nirvana's takeover of the world in the early 90's, brings great insight to MTV Performances, albums, and interviews you will find this book addicting!!! Kurt was such a charismatic character Read it Listen to it enjoy it Peace Love and Punk Rock!!!
