Certain artists define an era--and, for the end of the millennium, it was Nirvana, the mega-talented grunge rockers who exploded out of Seattle. Under the incandescent leadership of Kurt Cobain, Nirvana achieved worldwide fame with the 1991 release of Nevermind and its iconic single, -Smells Like Teen Spirit.- Though the band released just one more album before Cobain's demons drove him to suicide, Nirvana remains an enduring influence. Now, through interviews with those close to the band, coupled with intensive archival research, this lushly illustrated book captures the triumph and tragedy of Nirvana.
New edition of Treasures of Nirvana, with reproductions of formerly removable memorabilia now printed on the page.
