To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, his old manager is releasing a book to celebrate his life.
Dannie Goldberg managed Nirvana between 1990 and 1994, meaning he managed the band during the release of the iconic grunge album Nevermind.
The book will be titled Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain and will include not just Golberg’s own memories of Cobain, but interviews with the band’s bassist Krist Novoselic and his ex-wife, Courtney Love. The book will include never-seen-before files and will shed light on Cobain’s struggle with addiction and his inner demons. It will also celebrate Nirvana’s contribution to music.
Last year, Goldberg briefly introduced the book, explaining: “I began to work with Kurt the year before Nevermind was recorded and remained close to him until days before his death. Media depictions of Kurt typically focus on the tragedy of his death.
“While it is impossible to ignore the inner demons which tormented him, in researching and writing Serving the Servant I have been more often reminded of Kurt’s brilliance, his sense of humour and his kindness to most of those around him. He was so complex that no two people experienced the same person, but I hope I am able to add another dimension to Kurt’s legacy.”
Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain will be released April 2.
