||Nearly three years after his suicide at age twenty-seven, Kurt Cobain remains a vital fore in today's music scene. From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah, an album of Nirvana's live recordings, rocketed up the charts in the fall of 1996, and the Seattle grunge sound that Cobain and his band pioneered remains the dominant style in alternative rock. This lavishly illustrated tribute book, published in hardcover seven months after Kurt Cobain's death, has become a must-have commemorative volume for true Nirvana fans, with sales averaging more than 1,000 copies a month over the last two years. Drawing on Rolling Stone's peerless coverage of Nirvana throughout the band's all-too-brief history, Cobain is filled with revealing photographs, in-depth interviews, and incisive feature writing by the top names in rock journalism today. Now, with this affordable new paperback edition, a whole new audience of Cobain fans will be able to revisit the talent, the anguish, and the achievement of this generation-defining artist.
