Kurt Cobain: The Nirvana Years

by Carrie Borzillo-Vrenna
First published in 2003

ISBN 1-84442-962-8 (Hardback, 192 Pages)

Presented in an illustrated timeline format, a timeline that stretches from his birth in 1965 right through until his funeral in 1994, the book chronicles the life of Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain on an almost daily basis.

Containing many quotations and recollections from the fifty-five people that the author interviewed - including some of the very people who were around at the height of the band's fortunes - the book carefully documents every significant or noteworthy event for both the band and Cobain's life.

There is just one reference to River included in the timeline - an event during the holiday season that occurred halfway through the filming of Sneakers that is very briefly referred to.

December 31, 1991

Nirvana once again delivered another explosive performance with the entire pit jumping up and down in unison.
Backstage, it was the scene of all scenes. Bill Graham Presents created a festive atmosphere in the VIP area for the New Year's holiday. Each band had their own tent and between the tents was a jukebox where Dave Grohl and Chris Novoselic were playing Beatles songs, according to John Troutman, who was there. Keanu Reeves and the late River Phoenix were also backstage. Steffan Chirazi was there doing an article for the now-defunct metal magazine Rip. Someone had changed Nirvana's name card on their dressing room to Thee Nirvana (like Thee Headcoats). Inside their trailer, recalls Mike, it was completely trashed.
