New York Public Library’s Book for the Teen Age
Kurt Cobain grew up surrounded by those who loved and played music, and it did not take long for Kurt himself to realize all he wanted to do in life was write songs. Ultimately he and his band, Nirvana, became a groundbreaking part of the international music scene. Ultimately, dissatisfaction with fame and a dependence on heroin led to his untimely death at age 27. Explores the rock legend’s too-brief life, his revolutionary music, and the enduring legacy he left behind, all from the perspective of an author who knew Cobain and dedicated part of his life to honoring the musician.
“An unusually intimate account of the rock legend … Thorough endnotes, a well-rounded bibliography, and a discography conclude this detailed title, which stands out from many series biographies because of its insider’s appreciation for the musician and his legacy.” – Booklist
