Nirvana, the rock band that put Seattle on the rock map, will be inducted April 10 into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Coincidentally, the induction comes just five days after the 20th anniversary of the day Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain committed suicide.
What are your thoughts about Nirvana and its legacy? Many readers have been sharing memories and opinions (click here if you want to add yours). We’ve also collected a page of recollections from artists who were around during Nirvana’s heyday or were influenced by the band in later decades.
Seattle resident and writer Charles R. Cross, editor of The Rocket magazine when Nirvana broke, wrote the definitive book on Cobain, “Heavier Than Heaven” (see The Seattle Times review here). On Friday, April 4, at 12 noon, we are offering a rare opportunity for readers to chat online with Cross. Join the conversation here.
