Guitar World the Life and Genius of Kurt Cobain

Author(s): The Editors of Guitar World


The Cobain book that's by and for guitar fans especially--from Guitar World, the #1 guitar publication, a photo-heavy insider's guide to the life and the music of rock visionary Kurt Cobain. Kurt Cobain--rock visionary, godfather of grunge, voice of the disaffected--was also a powerful and influential guitarist. The Life and Genius of Kurt Cobain examines his impact on American music--and why a man who had everything came to the terrible conclusion that he had nothing. Collected here are the stories and interviews exclusively published by Guitar World, chronicling Cobain's dramatic ascent on the Seattle music scene, the making of Nirvana's albums, Cobain's personal demons, and his far-reaching legacy. Packed with color photos throughout, plus a special guitar TAB section that shows how to play now-classic songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
