Cross will join the show to talk about the process of writing a Cobain biography, Heavier than Heaven, which is also set to be made into a film. Cross has appeared in Rolling Stone, Spin and Esquire and was the editor of The Rocket until 2000.
Journalist Tanya Sweeney will also speak about music before and after Nirvana and the influence of grunge on the bands of today.
Additionally, Royseven and Giveamanakick will play live, performing 'All Apologies' and 'About A Girl', respectively.
