Overview

Before the Storm: The Formative Years of America's Last Great Band offers a concise and insightful summary of the early years of Nirvana.  From the childhood of Kurt Cobain to the difficulties of Nirvana's early tours, readers are likely to walk away with new knowledge about America's last great band.

Description
Late in the last century, deep in the Pacific Northwest amongst the economic and psychological hardships of one town, America's last great band was born - Nirvana. The band's leader, a young introvert with superior songwriting talents, slowly molded a style inspired by punk, metal, sludge, and pop. The results changed the band and the music industry forever. Before the Storm: The Formative Years of America's Last Great Band chronicles the birth of Nirvana in Aberdeen, Washington, and their early years as independent artists to worldwide superstars. The outcome is known, but the infancy of the band and its rise is a compelling lesson in tenacity, unity, the love of music, and sadly, tragedy.
