Former Nirvana Manager Publishing Book About His Time With Band
Former Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg, who handled the band during its most successful years from 1990 through 1994, will share his memories of the band in a new book called Serving The Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain. The book is due out via Ecco Press on April 2nd, just four days before the 25th anniversary of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's untimely death.
The book is described as "a fresh and frank portrait of an icon unlike any that has come before," that will draw on Goldberg's own memories of Cobain, files that previously have not been made public, and interviews with Cobains's close family and friends, including his widow Courtney Love and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
A press release stated that Serving The Servant sheds "an entirely new light" on Cobain, calling the book an "exploration of his brilliance in every aspect of rock and roll, his compassion, his ambition, and the legacy he wrought -- one that has lasted decades longer than his career did."
Cobain's life and music still fascinates the public more than two decades after his death and we asked his biographer Charles R. Cross why that is: "You know, the guy lived such a huge life, even though he died two decades ago, there's so many ways he still has affected culture that in some ways it doesn't even feel like he's gone."
Joan Jett said about Goldberg's book, "As soon as I started reading, I got sucked in and I couldn't put it down . . . any Nirvana fan must have this book." Seattle-based filmmaker Cameron Crowe added, "There have been many portraits of Kurt Cobain, but none as warm and clear-eyed as this one."
