More than twenty years have passed since Kurt Cobain took his own life in April 1994. Today, his legacy continues to fascinate, inspire, and haunt us. This riveting chronicle, which accompanies award-winning director Brett Morgen's highly anticipated documentary, paints an illuminating and honest portrait of the Nirvana frontman, capturing the contradictions that made up his character: He could be sincere and sentimental and also ironic and sarcastic, was sweet yet sour, and was both serious and very funny.
Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, and the Cobain Estate approached Morgen to make a fi lm examining Kurt's life, and after five years of research, filming, and countless interviews, a work has emerged that depicts the true spirit of the '90s rock legend. The film includes interviews with numerous family members and friends, many of whom speak publicly about their relationship with Kurt for the first time.
Hundreds of hours of candid interviews were trimmed to a mere ninety minutes of film time. The full transcripts are included in these pages, along with animation stills from the film, never-before-seen photographs, and other artefacts, offering revealing new insights into the life and character of Kurt Cobain.

Montage of Heck
Based on the acclaimed documentary film, the Montage of Heck contains a brilliant collection of memorabilia, interviews, drawings and memories of Kurt Cobain. Even if you have seen the film this book features a lot of things that were not expressed or shown. Thus, meaning Cobain still has many more interesting views, art works, song lyrics that have not been featured or seen before. A different approach is taken when reading through instead of watching the documentary as it is more in depth and shows the reader a better outlook on who Kurt Cobain was. - Liam
