"These images were taken at the end of Nirvana’s tour of Europe in late
1989, when they were primarily playing small clubs. My Sub Pop business
partner Jon Poneman and I decided to join up with Nirvana (and the TAD
band) in Rome as we heard that Kurt was suffering from exhaustion. We
had set up a showcase in London at the end of the tour (that also
included Mudhoney) and we were concerned that the band might not be able
to make it. This edition shows a despondent Kurt, the following day, with his head in his hands.
At the previous night’s show, he suffered a breakdown on stage, and
threatened to jump from the PA stack. It was a very intense night, and
he wanted to break up the band immediately after the show." - Bruce Pavitt || Read our full interview with Bruce Pavitt at News.1xRUN.com...
