Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Too many rock books--particularly those about the recently, luridly dead--are hastily assembled from clippings and feature only the most superficial assessment of the artist and music in question. It's a pleasure to report, then, that veteran music journalist Christopher Sandford has produced a solidly researched and coherently argued portrait of Nirvana's front man. The author doesn't flinch from the ugly aspects of Kurt Cobain's personality and lifestyle, nor is he wholly admiring of the music. This critical perspective ultimately makes Cobain more human and his 1994 suicide more tragic.

Kurzbeschreibung

In this compelling biography, Christopher Sandford explores the full, inside story of Kurt Cobain.

From the disruptive childhood which had such a crucial impact on Cobain's personality to the ambitious career musician who, as a friend said, "lunged for success", and the worldwide breakthrough of Nirvana's Nevermind, Sandford also writes about Cobain's stormy marriage to Courtney Love, his heroin addiction, and how he became more and more of a recluse. Finally, he writes of the crisis when, in April 1994, Cobain turned a shotgun on himself and became a martyr for disaffected youth.

The result is a saga of success and corruption which John Peel has called "the ultimate rock and roll morality story".

I found this book unnecessarily dark and melodramatic in tone. What disturbs me is the author's simplistic, unsympathetic perspective on Cobain. To me, his perspective was too narrow and sensational to be a realistic portrait or convincing analysis. To his credit, the author seems to have spent a lot of time presenting evidence to try to support his dark portrait, but the credibility of the evidence also seems questionable, as other reviewers have expressed. The author does not seem to be so concerned with arriving at the reality of Cobain, so much as psycho-analyzing a narrow slice of his life, namely: his drug abuse, his tough childhood, and his suicide. From the very beginning of the book to its end these three miserable, depressing themes come up time and again, without sufficient consideration of the brighter side to his life... it feels as though he is doomed to his tragic fate from the very first page of the book, and each page of the book is just a step closer to his preordained demise... you can't help but feel depressed by this fatalistic presentation. But when one listens to the music of Cobain, one feels the picture is more complicated, more compelling, more beautiful, inspired and more touching. As Courtney Love, his wife, is quoted as saying in one section of the book, they (as a couple) were not just about drugs, they were also real, ordinary people. As we well know, the media likes to sensationalize their portrayals of people's lives to sell their newspapers and books, but in so doing they generate a lot of hurtful, misleading and damaging information, which the famous and their families have to deal with. One comes away from this book with an image of a violent, ugly, victim. What about the other important sides to Cobain that are not represented here? This book and the music of Kurt Cobain paint two different pictures, and I know which one I am more convinced by: his music shows us his essence, his soul, and his message.

This book is a must for Nirvana fans who are interested in reading a brutally truthfull account of Kurt Cobain, the man, and the tragic, brilliant life. While most books cover only the superficial aspects of Nirvana and Cobain,(Come As You Are) feeding you a selective, sugar coated, image, I was thrilled that the book included Cobains frailties, contradictions, and defects, as well as his briliance, and benevolece, making Cobain more human and accesible. Christopher Sandford provides the unflattering details that other books would rather ignore, such as Kurt's attempeted rape a woman, his bi-sexuality and sexual deviancies, his deliberate efforts at mainstream succes, his pulic support of feminism and punk while privately having alliegiance only to himself, his rampant drug abuse, and rock star vanities. The book provides a complete account of Kurt Cobains life, from before his birth, his childhood, all the way through his death. The book searches for deeper meaning beyong the superficial surface, like documenting that Kurts drug depedance began in childhood. This book may displease alot of Nirvana fans because it may clash with thier nice and sensitive guy image of kurt feuld by the media, which is only one side of this comlex man. Others may feel that it is too negative, but I feel the Sandford simply reports what other self-cecored, sycophantic books have failed to report and gives a more balaced, unbiased account of one of my heroes, and my favorite musician. This is by far my favorite Kurt Cobain book, and after reading it I felt I understood Kurt better than ever.

I was hoping this would be a definitive biography on the late rock icon, since one has not been written since his death. I was amazed at how much of the book relied on 'sources' & 'witnesses' to fill in crucial moments in Cobain's life. Although the author claims certain parties did not want to reveal their true identities, it comes off more a work of fiction & lies. The author also compared Cobain to another rock icon, Jimi Hendrix, to the point where the book came off being a partial biography of him as well. I don't have the space to fill all the wrongs in this book, but over half of his behind the scenes details of Kurt's life are totally off. A lot of it is just plain putrid, slanderous nonsense. Kurt Cobain meant a lot of things to a lot of people, & I am still awaiting the day that an honest, dignified account of his life is written. I am not saying he was a saint or without fault, its just that something needs to be written that does justice to the guy.

Get Real! I started to read this book immediately after reading Come As You Are (which was absolutely amazing!) but had to put this down before I tore it up in disgust. It's information was from the very magazines and articles that frusterated Kurt with all their lies. Seems like the author did no investigating on his own what-so-ever. In fact he didn't even talk to the people that really knew Kurt in those days. No Chris, Dave, Courtney, producers, friends, etc. And the so called Quotes we're very questionable. He wouldn't say who they were from. I flipped through the pages and found one discrepancy after another. Christopher wrote like an enemy of Kurt's so if you want the truth, get a book like Come As You Are!

I read this book, and I have to say that not only are the sources completely unreliable, but the so-call accounts that have taken place also took place in such magazines, oh, should we say, National Enquirer for one. This is a sad and false representation of a great musician and band,and i'm not only saying this because i'm a fan. Christopher Sandford, a lowly London jornalist, acquired information that had the same value as talking about the 600 pound baby you see by the cash registers in supermarkets. This book was a total waste of my time, and I'm sure many others, and it left me with a questioning and disgusted feeling towards the author, and not towards the intended target, Kurt Cobain.
