Danny Goldberg, the former co-manager of Nirvana is opening up about his time working with Kurt Cobain and the legendary band in new book
On the 25th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, Danny Goldberg – the former manager of Nirvana is releasing a book, Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain which will detail his stint with the band.
Set to be released on April 2, the book explores Nirvana’s dizzying success from 1990 to 1994, starting from the day Goldberg and colleague John Silva agreed to manage the legendary musician, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic to the day Cobain tragically died by suicide.
Those four years saw Nirvana release one of the greatest records ever in Nevermind, Cobain’s relationship to Courtney Love, followed by the birth of their daughter, along with Cobain’s battle with addiction.
The book will include interviews with bassist Novoselic, Courtney Love and others. In a statement last year, Goldberg said: “I began to work with Kurt the year before Nevermind was recorded and remained close to him until days before his death. Media depictions of Kurt typically focus on the tragedy of his death.
“While it is impossible to ignore the inner demons which tormented him, in researching and writing Serving the Servant I have been more often reminded of Kurt’s brilliance, his sense of humour and his kindness to most of those around him. He was so complex that no two people experienced the same person, but I hope I am able to add another dimension to Kurt’s legacy.”
