The lyrics notebook and personal journals of Kurt Cobain, iconic singer of the band Nirvana.
Kurt Cobain filled dozens of notebooks with lyrics, drawings, and writings about his plans for Nirvana and his thoughts about fame, the state of music, and the people who bought and sold him and his music. His journals reveal an artist who loved music, who knew the history of rock, and who was determined to define his place in that history. Here is a mesmerizing, incomparable portrait of the most influential musician of his time.
"Eighty percent of this book made me feel as if I were examining someone's dirty underwear, or perhaps watching someone in the apartment across the way do something unspeakable. Maybe this is reason enough for Kurt Cobain's journal entries and letters to have been published at all: They're a harrowing warning to all young artists to protect their talent at whatever cost." Adrienne Miller, Esquire
