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.
ROLLING STONE “ Sects and drugs and rock & roll Come as You Are has got it all . ' A. ' ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY " One of the few memorable , indispensable books about alternative rock ... It's all here , in one of the most revealing books ...
So much has happened in the meantime : drug rumors , breakup rumors , lawsuits , and about five million more copies of the Nevermind album sold worldwide . And much hasn't happened — a U.S. arena tour , a new album .
And a lot of times they fuck up , but it's hard to believe that a person can put something as poisonous as alcohol or drugs in their system and the mechanics can take it — for a while . It's amazing they take them at all .
Like many kids of his generation , Kurt had been given the drug Ritalin , a form of speed , which counteracts hyperactivity . It kept him up until four in the morning . Sedatives made him fall asleep in school .
99 Wendy sent Kurt off to live with his buddy Jesse Reed , whose parents were born - again Christians . Kurt was broke and told a local drug dealer that he would sell him his guitar and left it at his house on good faith .

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
