Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana
Crown, 23. sij 2013. - Broj stranica: 336
“Amazingly raw and candid . . . Come As You Are is as good as rock bios get” —Billboard
Nirvana came out of nowhere in 1991 to sell nearly five million copies of their landmark album Nevermind, whose thunderous sound and indelible melodies embodied all the confusion, frustration, and passion of the emerging Generation X.
Come As You Are is the close-up, intimate story of Nirvana—the only book with exclusive in-depth interviews with bandmembers Kurt Cobain, Krist Noveselic, and Dave Grohl, as well as friends, relatives, former bandmembers, and associates—now updated to include a final chapter detailing the last year of Kurt Cobain's life, before his tragic suicide in April 1994.

While imarguably incomplete, this is still the best book anyone has yet written about Nirvana or Kurt Cobain. Azerrad has a clear love for the band and its members, yet still manages to be critical of their work and fame. Worth reading. Pročitajte cijelu recenziju
