Treasures of Nirvana

by Gillian G. Gaar



Barnes and Noble Indiebound
On the 25th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s tragic death—and the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s debut album, Bleach—this deluxe package commemorates the band that defined a generation and a genre.
Certain artists define an era. Elvis Presley. The Beatles. The Sex Pistols. For the end of the millennium, it was Nirvana, the mega-talented grunge rockers who exploded out of Seattle in the late 1980s. Under the incandescent leadership of Kurt Cobain, the band achieved worldwide fame with the 1991 release of Nevermind and its iconic single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Though the band released just one more album before Cobain's demons drove him to suicide, Nirvana remains an enduring influence. Now, through interviews with those close to the band, coupled with intensive archival research and 20 pieces of unique, removable memorabilia, this lushly illustrated reissue puts the triumph and tragedy of Nirvana right into your hands.

Gillian G. Gaar is the author of She’s a Rebel: The History Of Women In Rock & Roll; Green Day: Rebels With a Cause; Nirvana: In Utero; The Rough Guide to Nirvana; and Elvis Presley: The Legend. Her work has appeared in numerous anthologies, including Trouble Girls: The Rolling Stone Book of Women In Rock; Goldmine: The Beatles Digest; and The Nirvana Companion. She has also written for Mojo, Rolling Stone, Goldmine, and the Experience Music Project museum, among others, and served as a project consultant on Nirvana’s With the Lights Out boxed set. She lives in Seattle.
