Nirvana: The Biggest Rock Band of the’90s
Spawned in the intensely fertile music scene that blossomed in and around Seattle in the late 1980s, Nirvana instantly distinguished itself from the bulk of its peers by virtue of the singular passion that drove its leader, Kurt Cobain. Few were prepared for worldwide Nirvana-mania set off by the 1991 release of Nevermind. Fuelled by the instantaneous success of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', the album stormed the charts. Their next album, In Utero, was the last studio recording released by Nirvana: the demons that made Cobain's writing so powerful took their toll; and he took his own life less than a year later. Although the band released just five albums, Nirvana created timeless songs which have remained very much alive. Written by a highly respected Nirvana expert and illustrated throughout with stunning photographs, Nirvana is the ultimate celebration of these rock legends. Through interviews with those close to the band coupled with the reproduction of rare memorabilia on the page, Nirvana brings you closer than ever to the band that changed the world.
