They defined a generation and changed the world…
The explosive, impulsive-but-retiring genius of Kurk Cobain, mixed with creative efficiency of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, made for an electric mixture of pop-punk, with haunting lyrics, dynamite riffs and stunning energy. From 1989 to 1994 the band played around the world to a host of adoring fans, and this book takes you along on that wild ride: to Seattle in the late 1980s where grunge was taking off; to Reading Music Festival in 1992, one of Nirvana's greatest shows; and to the final days that culminated in the tragic suicide of Kurt Cobain. The story is told in words, photographs and items of rare facsimile memorabilia, including set-lists, tickets to the rarest shows, backstage passes and much more from a significant private collection.

35 cm x 32 cm 4 cm boxed set of 62 page hardcover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome !!! I have been a Nirvana fan since the age of 13 and recently received the Treasures of Nirvana box set for my birthday. I have been collecting memorabilia throughout the years, and this box set consists of a fully illustrated book with several enclosures containing posters and reprinted tickets of various shows that the band performed, which I love!! I have many Nirvana books but none quite like this. This book gives a detailed look into the lives of each band member and the trials and tribulations that they faced and overcame to become recognized in the beginning and the rollercoaster ride they faced once they got to the top, especially Kurt Cobain. It starts off on April 24 1988, when the band played one of their first shows at The Vogue in Seattle Washington as well as providing a descriptive discography of each of the five albums they produced until the death of Kurt Cobain on April 8, 1994. Nirvana was monumental in revolutionizing the grunge era of the 1990's. They left their mark on the music industry and their legacy lives and thrives through the music, even though the band is no longer. One gets a good look at how this all started and how it ended tragically and I would recommend it to any Nirvana fan out there who wants to learn the facts and appreciates them as much as I do!!!
