Book Offers An Insight Into Kurt Cobain's Life From His Former Manager

“Bumping into Geniuses: My Life Inside the Rock and Roll Business", a book written by Nirvana's former manager Danny Goldberg is scheduled to come out September 18th. The book includes many excerpts about Goldberg's actual involvement and personal experiences with the band, specifically Kurt Cobain:

“He was an extraordinarily thoughtful and supportive friend, a loving husband and father, as well as a tormented depressive and textbook druggie,”

Goldberg goes on into further detail about the great impact that Cobain's death had on Nirvana and its fans, as well as the scar it left on grunge metal as we know it today.

Wtf are you on about? The old saying goes "Nirvana opened America's front door and James and Lars walked right on in". If Nirvana were not around then the face of heavy music would be way different. They may not have bee metal but if it wasn't for them metal would never have gotten as big as it did.
Also, Courtney Love better not get a cent.

I agree, wiggles. I think what Nirvavan did FOR music is more important than their actual musical output. I, for one, cringe at the thought of Kurt Cobain being labelled a legend, and I despise it when people say he was one of the most talented guitar players ever. Everytime I see him on some list put together by some corporate shills disguised as a leftist magazine (ROLLING STONE) it makes me want to puke. I never liked Nirvana, I never liked Courtney Love, hell, I barely liked grunge. If it weren't for Alice in Chains and Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, I'mn not too sure I would have given a sh** at all. And yeah, Nirvana may have helped destroy hair metal, but, come on, hair metal was doing a good job of destroying itself, and it would've happened eventually whether grunge happened or not.

I wish people would stop giving Kurt Cobain so much credit. When someone puts him on a pedestal, all it tells me is that that person has NO f***ing clue what they're talking about. I'm glad Kurt Cobain shot himself and I don't care who gets mad at me for saying that. I've felt that way since he did it. He was a f***ing sellout scumbag pillhead. I don't miss him even a little bit. If I recall correctly, nobody was praising Nevermind and In Utero until he was dead. I remember Pearl Jam was way better than Nirvana, especially back then.

Well Crawford, I would have to disagree. Nirvana opened another doorway into metal as we perceive it today, and as Wiggles said, without them metal probably wouldn't exist in the first place. Sure you may not like them, as a matter of fact you may hate them. But the fact of the matter is, without them we wouldn't be listening to much of the music that we do today. Love them or hate them, they still did their part and put in their two cents, and as a result we have the metal that we love to listen to. Oh and Courtney Love, she's the sellout. I'm with Wiggles in saying that she had better not get a penny. She's probably the one who killed him, and there is factual evidence that points to that. Although I suppose that when you have more money then god, you can sometimes make evidence just... disappear....

I am no fan either. But the fact is that if Nirvana didn't get so big then people would never have thought that they could make a living out of music, with passion behind it. So you would probably never have seen metalcore, nu-metal, the thrash revival, whatever. Metal would have stayed more in the shadows than show itself in the spotlight.

Whaaa??? Are you kidding me Wiggles? A) Metal of all sorts was massive in the 80s, as were Metallica - before Cobain was even a blimp on the radar. The Black Album introduced Metallica to the world not Nirvana.

And holy crap, Grunge almost single handedly forced metal underground and nearly killed it in the 90s. Ummm metalcore and nu-metal are hardly celebrated genres in metal circles are they, so that just leaves the thrash revival - which wouldn't need to have been revived if it hadn't been killed by Grunge!!!

^I was just about to make that point.

I am, however a fan of Nirvana. I like grunge in general. It's basically emo with integrity. Instead of "I'm depressed because I don't get any attention" it's "I'm depressed so f*** everyone". Which is pretty in-tune with me when I'm feeling down. Nirvana weren't great musicians, but they pulled off their own depressed grunge style perfectly. I love it.

Oh and post 6 made me laugh - whoa, Red, easy fella! :P

Anyone in this thread over 35? I saw it coming, I was watching the "Headbangers Ball" when it was dominated by Hair bands and Thrash. Motley was about to release Dr Feelgood, and don't speak on things that you don't know if you don't understand my next point. As bad as they all were, Warrant, Winger, Ratt, Scorpians, Poison, et al... were dominatining MTV. Then one night "Smells Like Teen Spirit" hit the show and everything changed overnight almost. Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana killed the "Ball" and it was replaced with the laughable Superrock show. The only thing that was a constant that year was Metallica blew a wall down and single handedly kept the Metal scene alive. 1991 and 1992 were terrible years for metalheads as far as being able to see anything beyond Grunge. Only Metallica put out the one CD that woke up that sleeping giant to keep the torch burning. Some of you may hate the Black Album but it is an awesome record from start to finish. It was the next logical step for them. Not their best and I worship Metallica and every album they put out, i'm no fair weather fan. Nirvana on the other hand reallistically put out one great record that spawned so many bands that industry insiders rank them with Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin as one of the most influential bands of all time. I know you disagree but you are wrong just go into any musical timeline and see the "MAJOR" bands that came after Nirvana and you will continue to hear that influence today. To quote... "You know it's Sad But True"

post 10, the black album by no means introduced metallica onto the metal scene. Their first album, Kill 'em All did, and if not that, then Ride The Lightning certainly did....

As for the issue of whether or not Kurt Cobain killed himself:
The autopsy conducted on Cobain's body revealed that he had four times the lethal dose of heroin in his bloodstream which would have allowed him about 2-3 seconds to get his shotgun, position it, and then kill himself from the time of injection. Also, Kurt Cobain killed himself by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun. Simple logic would reveal that the only way to pull a trigger on a shotgun that is aimed towards your head is with your toe. Ok, fine, Kurt Cobain pulled the trigger with his toe. One catch.... he was wearing work boots at the time of his death, fully laced up. There are also rumors that the entry wound was at the back of his head, and the exit wound was in his face. I believe this to be a rumor though, as this would have been remarkably harder to cover up. These facts have been published in books, and are known throughout the metal community.

Well if he only had 2 to 3 seconds to pull the trigger it could be done with a broom handle or something. The only way it could be done, however is if he had EVERYTHING set up prior to the injection of the heroin.

Also, I would have to see pics of the scene and have an inventory of everything, to determine if there was such a tool one could use to pull the trigger. There is also g.s.r that would have to be found on the floor, a full bullistics report done, finger prints examined and most of all anyone in the area of the scene tested for g.s.r and finger printed. Alot goes into such an investigation, as you are probably aware of.

Yes I am aware of what is involved in a crime scene... but from what i hear and read, there was foul play somewhere in there. Details of a broomstick handle or something of that nature have never reached my eyes or ears, so i can't say that something that significant would be overlooked. Also as you said before, everything could have been prepared prior to injection. But then again... what's to say that everything wasn't set up just moments after? What's to say that Cobain was shot after the heroin overdose, and he was set up to look like a suicide. But then again..... what's to say that i'm full of sh** and that he really did commit suicide? lololol i suppose we will never really know the full truth, even if Courtney Love comes out in a news conference tomorrow and admits that the whole thing was set-up by her, because after all, who can believe that dirty skank hahahaha

Nirvana inspired countless people and bands to take metal down a new road. They may have not been metal but that doesn't mean that they haven't shaped the current scene. Like for example, Black Flag and Misfits were a huge inspiration on early Metallica. My point is you don't have to be metal to change metal. Yeah there were big bands in the 80's. But were there anywhere near as many as we have now?

Great points Skylark, (love your name by the way, my Dad's name is Sky) to be honest both scenarios would not surprise me, as both profiles have the same potential for Kurt's death to occur. Then again, the truth maybe that one of the band members cought wind of Kurt possibly quitting and put out a hit or did the deed themself. Like you said, we will never really know the truth.

Metal inspired metal wiggles. Sorry. Cynic and psythe are right. Grunge destroyed the metal scene and nirvana inspired no one. I would be more than likely to accept the fact that it happened if you could put forth some sort of evidence. The only thing Nirvana did was give metal a new name and sound. Instead of heavy distortion and rebellious lyrics. It became soft rock with upset f*** the world lyrics. Thus leaving metal in the hands of metallica and megadeth and we all know when that boat should have docked. Bands like Pantera were lucky to come out on top in an era dominated by QQ music. If you could name at least 5 bands (in the metal genre) that were inspired by Nirvana, that actually made it somewhere (not including bands that former members made) I might believe you.

I don't think grunge killed the metal scene so much as the hair metal scene was imploding on itself and people were happy to jump ship to something new. I mean it was seriously going downhill by 88, 89 and 90. The output from a number of staple thrash, death and other real metal bands and sub genres remained excellent in the 90s but it did seem to get pushed underground pretty far.

My take on it is that this tends to happen when the current trend is radio-friendly. Then that's all you'll hear on radio and MTV. When the current trend is less radio-friendly like the more recent metalcore trend (all that screaming doesn't go over with the general public as well as Papa Roach and Motley Crue), then I think it gives the heavier metal bands a chance to rise up and grab some more attention as well. So perhaps we owe metalcore for assisting in the resurgence of real metal? Just a thought/theory.

To skylark - What I meant was that the Black Album propelled Metallica into super-stardom, past any realms of metal and grasped a more mainstream heavy rock audience.

To DB - Hmmm, I think not only hair metal went down the gurgler but thrash metal too. The thrash bands that kept releasing through the 90s undoubtedly changed their sounds as well, and I seriously can't count on all my hands and toes the amount of thrash bands that came out of the boom around 88,89 but got dropped by their labels and couldn't survive the early 90s. It was easier for the 2nd tier thrash bands like Overkill and Voivod as they had time to build up a fan base throughout the 80s.

I disagree with Wiggles to for this reason. All of my favourite metal bands are either pre 90s or death/black/doom metal, neither of which would have taken inspiration from Nirvana. I can't think of a single band I like that would have - I'd loved to be proved wrong though, I just can't think of any.

But as I was saying before, Black Album was the height of Metallica, but they came onto the scene much earler than that.

And as far as the attitude that "we wouldn't be listening to what we listen to today if it weren't for Nirvana.", I don't know about anyone else, but I have very little faith OR money invested in new music. Most of what I still buy, and have bought is music from when Kurt was a whiny little fag cutting himself in junior high school.

I wouldn't turn my head to look at a Kurt Cobain shirt, but I would walk on hot coals chewing on c***roaches for a copy of Death's Scream Bloody Gore on vinyl.

The way in which Nirvana started is an example for any band that is serious about having their music heard. Yeah, I don't really dig the music but they did have a big role in the evolution of rock/metal.

Jeez, man, with all the bands I've been in, I don't give a shxt if the grand wizard of the KKK was listening to it. I'd just be thankful to have fans. It makes no sense to create a band, create a sound, and then get mad when your band gets famous, regardless of who's listening. His stale, sorry a$$ should've been happy he had fans at all, what with the dreck that he got away with recording. And then people label him a god? I laugh. Dime was a f***ing god. Lennon was a f***ing god. GG ALLIN WAS A f***ING GOD. Not Kurt Ka-bang.

I don't give a shxt what any magazine says, Kurt was sh**, and so was his music. The only good thing Kurt did for music was getting Dave Grohl rolling.

And as far as the idea of him being murdered? That's total horsesh** in a brown paper bag. The only person on earth that gave a f*** about Kurt was probably his daughter. Kurt couldn't have been a "threat that must be assimilated". He was a junkie with an upside down guitar. I think he was a weak-willed crybaby chicken sh** and I'd say that once you have a daughter, or any kids at all, the suicide thing goes out the window. You've got an impression to make. You need to be a dad. Hopefuly his daughter won't grow up to be a stupid piece of sh** like her worthless father was.

And courtney love was so jacked up on anything when he died, I don't think sh's capable of putting anything together, let alone a contract killing.

f*** kurt cobain. Let him rot. Like I give a sh** about a book about his life. Does it have pics of his brain on the walls? No? Then don't f***ing bother marketing it to me. Or better yet, dig him up, and shoot him again. Just to make sure. He could be like Jason Voorhees, right? f*** that, Exhume him, and re-kill him. Then wear his skull like a f***ing hat.

GG Allin was no god! I think I'd probably call him an inspiration! Haha what a legend! Except for the whole playing with poo stuff. That's just gross.

I recently got the DVD Hated about him, and there's this scene where he's a$$ naked on a stage at NYU and these students think they're going to see a performance art event, right? SO anyways, GG walkes onstage, butt a$$ naked with a banana. He peels the banana, and then he tries to shove it all up his ass. Then he takes the mushy a$$ banana and throws it into the audience. Then he picks a fight with 15 people at a show and gets his arm broken.

Then, there's the part where he sh**s on the floor and rolls in it, the part where this prostitute is pissing in his mouth and he starts projectile puking into the air, then there's the part where he reams some woman's a$$ with a hot dog and then he eats it, I could go on and on.

And it's not that I want to do things like that, but I do like the idea of doing what ever the f*** you want when you want and when anyone tells you to stop, you just knock them the f*** out. Knowing that there has been people that have pushed the matter and made a profound impression. And I was never grossed out by it. I was certainly speechless, tho.

Cynic, I agree w/ your post 10...kirk cobain opened the door for who? Grunge was the reason most people kicked metal to the curb when they were trendy. I am sorry, kirk cobain was a cult hero, god bless him, but nothing more. decent song writer, and sub par musician. If you are a true metal fan, kirk cobain had no effect on what you listen to or your musical taste.......unless your favorite band is pearl jam. honestly, that is meant with no disrespect. another excuse for someone to make some dough off of a dead celebrity.

New Leviathan? Well simply, it's good but it's nowhere near as good as Tentacles of Whorror or Tenth Sublevel Of Suicide. I remember back when I was first getting into black metal it was through an online radio station which played a lot of USBM, so I was really into Xasthur, Leviathan and Draugar. Good bands.

Anyway, they didn't play much Nachtmystium so all I know from them is they had members in Twilight (which I'm guessing you'll know), and when I bought that album I thought it was not too bad. Malefic has a great voice, I'm looking forward to his new stuff to see if he can pull himself back to Nocturnal Poisoning ways.

if courtney love's husband, kurt cobain, who had a sh**load of money, suddenly died, wouldn't courtney love be set to inherit it all? sure she had money when he was alive, but it was HIS money not hers. kurt cobain stays alive, it's HIS money, kurt cobain dies, it becomes HER money. don't tell me that's not a motive...

^^ give me a f***ing break, ugly-bob. Keeping the band alive would've been more profitable to Courtney rather than a one-shot of some inheritance money. I think the whiny f***er SHOULD'VE left his money to the mother of his children. No questions. When his head's gone, what does he need money for?

Nobody cared about Kurt Cobain. Even if Courtney Love DID kill him for inheritance money, we all should be lining up around the country to suck her tits and shower her with gifts. Who f***ing cares how he died. The important thing is he's dead. I swear, Courtney Love will be my savior if I ever find out she murdered Kurt Cobain.
