From the Publisher
Annotation This volume provides fans with the first view of Cobain's widely anticipated journals--the contents addressing everything from the rigors of fame to opinions of other people, stars and otherwise.
Annotation 1 Nirvana front man and grunge rock saint Kurt Cobain left a considerable legacy of music and a considerable amount of anguish behind him when he committed suicide in 1994. JOURNALS, a collection of letters, rough drafts, diary entries, cartoons, and simple unedited thoughts, offers revealing glimpses of the inner workings of a mind that always seemed to be working overtime, and which Cobain often tried to switch off with doses of heroin. The handwritten and typed entries take us from Nirvana's early days, when the band had just been signed by Sub Pop and Cobain was recounting its discovery by Seattle's hip kids to the Melvins' Dale Crover, to a few years later, and the depths of Cobain's despair at the shortcomings of fame. In between there are some imaginative and some unworkable ideas for videos, letters to friends, and an amusing and poignant prose sketch of Cobain spending an evening with Krist (then Chris) Novoselic ripping on, and ultimately destroying, the unacceptably lame elements of Novoselic's record collection. By turns smart and smart-assed, intensely creative, and hopelessly despairing, the crude honesty of these scraps from Cobain's inner life reveals both their iconic writer's fierce intellect and his deep insecurity.
Editors Note The remarkable journals of the late rock star features a collection of Cobain's own lyrics, drawings, and writings about his career, fame, the state of the modern music world, Nirvana, his plans for the future, and more. Reprint.
