Editorial Reviews

The story of Nirvana begins with a troubled young man growing up in suburban Washington State, and Alan Cross reverently explores the roots of both Kurt Cobain and his band Nirvana in this broad and bittersweet elegy. Cross covers a lot of terrain in this short segment - part of his four-volume audio Alan Cross Guide to Alternative Rock - but he manages to do so comprehensively, examining everything from Cobain's early rotating cast of drummers to his drug addiction, from his struggles with fame to his romance with Courtney Love, from his suicide to its fallout.

Cross is a Canadian radio broadcaster and writer who has been a life-long "music geek" and both his expertise and his experience behind a microphone show in this recording.

Publisher's Summary

In this new audiobook, broadcaster and music writer Alan Cross narrates the definitive history of Nirvana. Cross succeeds once again in revealing the fascinating history behind the music in the same compelling way we've come to expect from his long broadcasting career.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
