Nirvana memorabilia exhibition
Louder Than War definitive interview with Nirvana … LINK!
You know you are getting old when bands that you remember being the first person to interview (over the phone at Kurt Cobain’s mother’s house when everyone else was ignoring them!) have an exhibition built around them.
Nirvana have now become social history as the new memorabilia exhibition in the group’s hometown of Seattle, Washington celebrates.
The show, titled Nirvana: Taking Punk To The Masses, will pay tribute to the legendary group and its late singer, Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994.
The items on display will include pieces of the first guitar Cobain ever destroyed onstage, a yellow cardigan regularly worn by the star in the 1990s and handwritten lyrics to a number of the band’s songs.
The band’s former bassist Krist Novoselic says, “It’s great that there will soon be a collection that celebrates (Cobain’s) contribution to music and culture.
“There’s a story with Nirvana at its centre, but it’s a story that also includes the many people, bands and institutions that make up a music community.”
The exhibition will run at Seattle’s Experience Music Project from April 16-22.
