The Nirvana story began when self-taught guitarist Kurt Cobain together with bassist Krist Novoselic and a handful of drummers, produced a nomadic style of punk music that made some waves in the underground, but flew under the mainstream radar. It was not until September 24, that the band released their multi-platinum album Nevermind , simultaneously changing the music scene, their fans and the band forever.
Nirvana began their career with no illusions about their chances for mass success. This quirky and idiosyncratic nature of the album is infectious and humorous at the same time which makes the album difficult not to enjoy.
The beauty in music is that quality often manifests itself in simple musical compositions. In this instance, Nirvana succeeded in capturing the essence of simple, addictive rock and roll that has regularly been the catalyst for successful bands such as The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath and The Ramones.
And while the music is the most significant aspect of the album, there is no escaping the historic and controversial album cover. As one of the most replicated images in history, perhaps most famously mimicked by The Simpsons, the image portrays a baby boy swimming underwater, presumably chasing after the dollar bill on a fish-hook in front of him.
While the image was just a simple idea taken to Geffen Records by Cobain and Grohl after watching a documentary on water births, it is the powerful imagery that left a long-lasting impression on audiences. The odd choice of album cover combined with a style of rock music that was both raw and edgy allowed Nirvana to bring their underground, alternative rock to a large mainstream audience and, at the same time, garner a level of admiration and respect from music lovers and critics alike.
Nirvana would release one more album, In Utero , before the tragic suicide of Kurt Cobain.

In , while conducting research for the Hendrix book, Cross rediscovered the gravesite of Jimi Hendrix's mother, Lucille Jeter Hendrix, in an abandoned section of Greenwood Memorial Park, where Jimi Hendrix himself is buried in an elaborate granite memorial.
The gravesite of Lucille Hendrix was lost because the standard welfare marker of her day, an inscribed brick, became buried in decades of mud from the area's notorious heavy rains.
Cross delivered a moving eulogy for Lucille when a proper headstone was dedicated at the site. This is the first film to be made from Cross' work. Books by Charles R. Trivia About Classic Rock Albu
