Duration: 14 hours 53 minutes
When Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994, it was an act of will that typified his short, angry, inspired life. Veteran music journalist Charles R. Cross fuses his intimate knowledge of the Seattle music scene with his deep compassion for his subject in this extraordinary story of artistic brilliance and the pain that extinguished it. Based on four years of exhaustive research, with exclusive access to Cobain's unpublished diaries, Heavier than Heaven traces Cobain's life from his early days in a trailer to his rise to fame, success, and the adulation of a generation.
