It has been twenty years since Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994; it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it. Based on more than four hundred interviews; four years of research; exclusive access to Cobain's unpublished diaries, lyrics, and family photos; and a wealth of documentation, Heavier Than Heaven traces Cobain's life from his early days in a double-wide trailer outside of Aberdeen, Washington, to his rise to fame, success, and the adulation of a generation. Charles Cross has written a preface for this new edition, in which he recounts some of the events regarding Kurt Cobain and this book in the past two decades since his death.… (mere)

Deep dive into Cobain's dark, very strange psyche. He left a substantial record--not just the songs, but diaries, unsent letters and art. ( )

Bom; não é maçante, mesmo sendo uma biografia. ( )

Only took me thirteen years to finally read it. Take that, Moby Dick. Mostly speculative fiction. ( )

Well written, detailed, fascinating. If you are a fan of Nirvana this is a must read. i was completely captivated and could not stop reading this book ..... and re-watching all of the videos ...... and listening to the music. An intimate portrait of a troubled soul who left us with amazing music. ( )

Kurt Cobain died my senior year in college, during our annual Rites of Spring, and I always associate his death with the end of college and the beginning of the real world. This is an interesting and well-researched account of his life and music. It was interesting to read, because when I was young of course I identified with his emotional angst, but now I'm the parent of teenagers and I identified with his parents. I kept trying to think of how he could have been helped. A good therapist at an early age, for example. A mentor. Prozac.

It just seems like such a waste, even more now that I have kids and I think of all the time with his daughter that he missed. ( )

Kurt was a complicated, contradictory misanthrope, and what at times appeared to be an accidental revolution showed hints of careful orchestration.
Fame and success only seemed to make him feel worse.
Kurt enjoyed making up his own lyrcis, even as a toddler.
Kurt wrote on his bedroom wall: "I hate Mom, I hate Dad. Dad hates Mom, Mom hates Dad. It simply makes you want to be so sad."
One day he and John Fields were walking home from school when Fields told Kurt, he should be an artist, but Kurt casually announced: "I'm going to be a superstar musician, kill myself, and go out in a flame of glory."
