Free books! Everett True's Nirvana The Biography

This week on the main site, we dipped back into the archives to dig up the faxes that Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love sent us back in '93 in response to a profile that appeared in our pages about Mary Lou Lord and her brief but intense relationship with Kurt around the time that Nevermind came out. Courtney has always downplayed the relationship, but Everett True's new Nirvana: The Biography (DaCapo) refutes Courtney's version of the tale, confirming that for a time Kurt was telling people how in love he was with Mary Lou, and even dreaming about moving to Boston to be with her. You can read the relevant excerpt from the book here, and also check out some other cool Nirvana interviews we pulled from the vaults. True also publishes a long and touching reminiscence written by Mary Lou, but for that you'll need to buy the book . . . or be one of the first six people in the comments section to name the first person to play "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on the radio. Hint: his first name was Kurt, too. (Use your real email addy so we can get at you: we promise, no spam.)
