Okay yeah yeah yeah i know what your thinkin....I am this girl obsessed with some stupid drugy person who commited suicide.....well think again. My name is Hallie and i dont think of as Kurt Cobain as a stupid man in my opinion he is more like a genius. "Cobain by the Editors of Rolling Stone" is a book that reveals the partially told story of his life and makes it completely understood that he is not what you would assume from what the media say...they are just doing their job and trying to make his life a big lie and also make some money in the process. Rolling Stone knows Nirvana from interviews and other afairs and the book explains about his sad life, Nirvana, his wife, and the light of his life...Frances Bean. "Kurt Cocain" is what people have been known to call him well yes he did have a drug problem but put yourself in his shoes and live his life and i think you would too. He was very confused and turned to drugs and that is what sucks the fact that kids think it is cool because he did them. Kurt Cobain hated himself and the last thing he wanted was to be was an influence on people especailly his own daughter. About his music....raging emotions put into words his lyrics are like a sad movie but the tears are invisible they are so powerful and hold a lot of meaning not really to us and make no sense but to him they are his cry out to the world. Now that you know a bit about Kurt Cobain get to know a little more about his very interesting and depressing life....."It's better to burn out than fade away" - Kurt Cobai

Format: Hardcover
Kurt Cobain was the talented, angry, and very depressed lead singer of an early 1990s grunge-rock band. This book written by "Rolling Stone" magazine is a factual book containing a few opinions on Cobain's life and personality. The authors did an exceptional job on informing the audience on his past background. They also did an astounding job on helping you understand why Cobain committed suicide and what his problems were. This book would be excellent for anyone who was a past fan of the band "Nirvana". Special quotes about Cobain's life and personality are given by Michael Stipe, who is the lead singer from R.E.M., Eddie Vedder, lead singer of Pearl Jam, and many other of his close friends. The authors used very descriptive details about this "legend's" life. This book made me realize what an incredible and depressing life Cobain led when he was young. I understood why he chose to do the things that he did towards the end of his life. What Courtney Love thought about his death was shocking and grabbing; while reading about his childhood history was informative and left a sympathetic feeling.

If you have the slightest interest in Nirvana, you will thoroughly enjoy 'Cobain'! Enough said! This book is an experience, and The Rolling Stone editors did an excellent job! 5/5!
