Recommended Reading - Kurt Cobain "Journals"

This month marks the 19th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's passing and the gaping hole he left behind in the music world with his songs and words. In 2002 a collection of Cobain's journals were published that dated between 1988 and 1993, each journal entry is a closer look into the mind of Cobain from starting Nirvana to ultimately ending it. Journals contains letters, drawings, lists, and Nirvana-related drafts, poems and the thought process of Cobain at work. It was a unique perspective for fans to pick apart the brain of the man they considered a hero, icon, and musical savior, however, Journals proves that Cobain could hardly save himself in the end. 

On it's release, Journals became a Best Seller and topped the New York Times Best Seller list and had everyone buzzing. While Cobain did not live long enough to see himself become a best selling author, he did leave behind a paper trail that cited why he will live on in infamy.
