Product Description

Review

'Superbly put together with a great mix of photos, flyers and detailed text, this book provides a comprehensive and entertaining read of this iconic band.'

(Rob McKenzie Fireworks Magazine)

From the Back Cover

Nirvana unintentionally tore the music world asunder in 1991 with "Smells Like Teen Spirit." At the time, MTV and the pop charts were dominated by vapid hair metal acts and Michael Jackson. Nirvana represented a much-needed return to punk-inspired rock. Two and half years after the release of "Teen Spirit," leader Kurt Cobain, age 27, killed himself and the ride was over. But for fans, the music--and the spirit--live on. Here is the first ever complete illustrated history of the band. Performance and off-stage photography, handbills, singles, tickets, gig posters, and other memorabilia complement a narrative detailing the band's tumultuous history, as well as album reviews, a gear breakdown, and more. The text is written by noted writers Charles R. Cross, Gillian G. Gaar, Bob Gendron, Todd Martens, Mark Yarm, Jim DeRogatis, Alan di Perna, Greg Kot, and Andrew Earles with stellar photography by Charles Peterson, Kevin Estrada, Jay Blakesberg, Ed Sirrs, Ian Tilton, and Steve Double.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy 15 July 2014
By Admin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for my dad on Father's Day and he absolutely loves it. I personally haven't seen it, but he was very excited to describe the handwritten list that Kurt wrote about his favorite artists. My dad has collected many Nirvana books and magazines over the years, but he was very impressed by the uniqueness of this book. I just might have to buy a copy for myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY NICE BOOK!!!# 10 Oct. 2015
By chrisS. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
VERY,VERY NICE BOOK. EVEN THOUGH THEY DONT SHOW, IN MY OPINION THE BEST FLYER OR THE SILKED SCREENED TICKET. WHEN THEY OPENED FOR DINOSAUR JR. IN UTAH. THEY PLAYED AT A PLACE THAT USED TO BE A CHURCH,IT WAS CALLED "THE POMPADOUR". THAT SHOW CHANGED MY LIFE. I LITTERALY THOUGHT TO MYSELF "I JUST SAW THE AMERICAN VERSION OF THE BEATLES". WHEN THERE SET WAS OVER KRIST YELLED "WHERES THE PARTY GOING TO BE",AS KURDT WAS WALKING RIGHT PAST TO GO TO THE BAR. I KICK MYSELF EVERY TIME I THINK ABOUT IT. I WAS JUST IN SHOCK AFTER SEEING THEM PLAY, AND DIDNT HAVE THE NERVE TO TALK TO HIM. BUT IF HE COULD SEE ALL THE FANS WHOS LIVES WERE CHANGED. I DONT THINK COURTNEY WOULD HAVE HAD HIM KILLED. I HIGHLY RECCOMED READING THE BOOK "LOVE & DEATH",(max wallace & ian halperin)
2.0 out of 5 stars Nirvana fan but not happy. 10 Jun. 2016
By carla69 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My wife ordered me a book on Nirvana one of my favorite bands for our anniversary.
I was very excited to get it but was not happy with the book.
It's basically Kurt Cobain book with very little about Kris or Dave
and also very little on the guys who were in Nirvana before they hit it big.
The book had good reviews but i could not get into it.
The book was mostly about what Kurt liked and Kurt's top 50 albums
and a bio on Kurt.
I love Nirvana and i have a great book on Kurt Cobain but i want a book about the whole band.
