Abstract:

"This biography explores the drama that formed this troubled, tragic rock star. Neither an apology nor a condemnation, Kurt Cobain presents an insider's view of the life and death of a man who galvanized a generation and gave birth to the "grunge" revolution with his band Nirvana." "Sandford portrays the provocative, small-town rebel with the talent of John Lennon and shows him at work on concert stages in Seattle, New York, and London. Readers follow the struggles of Cobain's emotional life - his tumultuous relationships with family and his fellow band members, his drug addiction and sexual appetite, his stormy marriage to Courtney Love, and the birth of his daughter who, as Cobain wrote in his suicide note, "reminds me too much of who I used to be."" "During his research, Sandford has had access to Cobaiin's family, his colleagues, his former friends and lovers, and even author William S. Burroughs, whom Cobain considered to be his "greatest influence." Released on the tenth anniversary of the rock star's death, this newly revised edition is a graphic account of the life that led to that day in April 1994, when Cobain turned a shotgun on himself and became a martyr to disaffected youth around the world."--Jacket.
