Read Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana Online Free - Nirvana came out of nowhere in 1991 to sell nearly five million copies of their landmark album Nevermind, whose thunderous sound and indelible melodies embodied all the confusion, frustration, and passion of the emerging Generation X. Come As You Are is the close-up, intimate story of Nirvana -- the only book with exclusive in-depth interviews with bandmembers Kurt Cobain, Krist Noveselic, and Dave Grohl, as well as friends, relatives, former bandmembers, and associates -- now updated to include a new final chapter detailing the last year of Kurt Cobain's life, before his tragic suicide in April 1994.

I'll confess - I was not the biggest Nirvana fan back in the day. I was more of a Pearl Jam/Green Day girl. I mean, I liked Nirvana, but it was "Ten" that I played on repeat, and it was "Kerplunk!" that I haunted CD stores in search of. Nirvana was good, but I wasn't into them the way some people...

Yes, I am still obsessed with this band.

I have pathetically idolized Kurt Cobain from both the early days of Nirvana to posthumously. I own a fairly large collection of biographies on the band and the artist. Included in that stack are his published journals and other writings. I was present during the infamous debacle at Trees in Dall...

My heart used to beat with the rhythm of this book. I have this paperback copy which no longer has the cover pages. It has deteriorated along with my teenage angst. However, I still remember being fourteen, dreaming about having a guitar, screaming the lyrics and my frustration with the world and...

This is a detailed history of NIRVANA written by someone who's obviously a part of the scene and knows the whole background of where the band came from and what they were trying to accomplish.
The problem, as other reviewers have pointed out, is that this author, Michael Azerrad, is very clearly...

The book's a little sloppy, but it's about a grunge band, so...
An interesting albeit sad read for anyone who lived through the swirl Nirvana caused as they destroyed the mainstream music market and then self-destructed, all within two years. Lots of direct interview material with everyone in the...

K got me doing some music biography reading, and I came across a cheap used copy of this one, so I finally got around to reading it just twenty short years after my Nirvana-listening peak. Probably required reading for fans. It's a very thorough biography of the band from its inception until just...
