Description

Live Through This is the inside story of the grunge phenomenon, that began in Seattle, found its peak with Nirvana, and took over the alternative rock scene around the world. The book features exclusive interviews with members of Nirvana, Hole, and Soundgarden among others, alongside tour managers, crew and even nannies - many of whom have refused to go on record since Cobain's tragic suicide in 1994. The author, Everett True, was a frequent house guest of Kurt and Courtney's in Seattle and the only journalist allowed within the house at the time of Kurt's death, or invited (by Courtney Love) to the funeral. True's style of writing and often controversial opinions will be well known to readers of Melody Maker. His recollections of excess, shared passionate love of music and grunge's personalities make for rollercoaster reading.show more
