Publisher's Summary

When Nirvana's Kurt Cobain inadvertently took his own life he left behind an army of shock rock fans. Nirvana and Cobain were the ones to put classic trash rock firmly on the map and sow the seeds for other young pretenders to follow. They were the mentors of Seattle sub-pop - and no one can say what direction their music would have taken, had Kurt lived on. Cobain says, "I started Nirvana because I had nothing else to do. I don't like sports so a band seemed to be a last resort for something to do socially. Our songs are about changing your frustrations." It didn't take Nirvana long to build up a huge army of followers- and their albums sold by the truck loads.

This is not an endorsed music release of the artist or record company and sound quality varies due to the nature of this live recording. This is a unique and timeless audiobiography which shows a larger than life Kurt Cobain who admits - "Although all my life I wanted to be a rock star - I don't know whether I can handle the adulation of it all. I have to be given space." Every music fan, collector and music buff must share this classic audio biog.

The audio is terrible

Yes, the audio is really terrible on this and the background music overpowers the interview at times. However, it is short and for a die hard Nirvana fan, it’s worth listening. Just don’t expect much.

A Bowl Full of...

Meh... and then several plates of meh, meh, meh and meh. It's really just a small recording of Kurt talking. Hardly an Autobiography.

terrible interviwer

I'm surprised that people were complaining about the background noise when the real problem is the terrible job the interviewer did. Nothing insightful here.

Do the Bartman

Loved this.
Just a conversation. In a bar.
Intimate, sincere… and the song “Do The Bartman” from the album “Simpsons sings the blues” plays on the background.
Thought was important to mention.

The Amazing & The Eh

I loved hearing Kurt Cobain’s opinions, I loved how it wasn’t too long, it was perfect… except for the background noises. Some people may call it authentic and that’s nice but i wasn’t a fan of the restaurant setting.

COBAIN IS GREAT

I like the personal side of this. It appears to be a live gig. Cobain at his wildest.
