As Assistant Editor on Melody Maker, Everett True was the first journalist to cover the Seattle music scene in early 1989 and interview Nirvana. He is responsible for bringing Hole, Nirvana, Pavement, Soundgarden and a host of other bands to public attention. He introduced Kurt to Courtney, performed on stage with Nirvana on numerous occasions and famously pushed Kurt onto the stage of the Reading Festival 1992 in a wheelchair. * SELLING POINTS: An honest, moving, incisive, heartfelt re-evaluation of a band that have been misrepresented time and time again since their untimely demise in April 1994. The true story written by the only journalist allowed into Cobain's house immediately after Kurt Cobain's death. Everett True captures what the band were really like - their feminine side, what happened to Cobain in Seattle and Olympia and when he first met Courtney. He also discusses the music scene of the time - the fellow bands, the scenes, the seminars, the countless live dates, the friends and allies and drug dealers.
