9780340936399: Heavier Than Heaven (Sceptre 21's)

'Superbly researched and harrowing...The squalor is ghastly but the sheer sadness of Cobain's brief life is beautifully conveyed here. Cross has painstakingly accumulated a wealth of telling detail' -- Robert Sandall, Sunday Times 'Cross's research is impeccable...HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN is, or should be, the last word on Kurt Cobain.' -- Lynn Barber, Daily Telegraph 'I was very glad to read this biography, the result of four years' research and 400 interviews, not to mention the sainted Kurt's police and medical records AND his unpublished journals. I was in hog heaven all the way through - in a caring, wistful way, of course.' -- Julie Burchill, Guardian 'Wins immediate entry into the rock lit pantheon. Five stars' -- Q Magazine 'Cross's portrayal of a shy but prodigiously gifted child, in artistic as well as musical terms, is a joy to read' -- Observer 'The secret here is that Cross was allowed unprecedented access to Cobain's world; his diaries, artworks and most significantly the people who surrounded him. Cross may vividly depict the seemingly inevitable demise of a rock star but he also successfully conveys just what all the fuss was about in the first place.' -- The List

From the Publisher:

Alongside the death of Elvis Presley and the assassination of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994 ranks as one of the generational milestones of American life - an epochal event in both rock 'n' roll and youth culture. This book is the story of Kurt Cobain's life, from abject poverty to unbelievable wealth, power and fame. It traces the journey from his humble origins in Aberdeen to becoming lead singer of Nirvana, the most popular rock band in the world from 1991 to 1994, and the most influential band of the decade. The beautifully written text is complemented by 16 pages of photographs.
