5 April this year will mark 21 years since former Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain, ended his life aged 27 and at the height of his musical career.
It’s taken that long for the first ever authorised documentary to get off the ground and now, finally we have the first trailer of HBO’s Montage Of Heck.
For any Nirvana fans it looks set to be an emotional ride, with intimiate home video footage of Cobain as a child and at home with wife Courtney Love and newborn daughter Frances Bean (who also serves as executive producer on the film) interspersed with the band's biggest moments, like their famous Reading set in 1992.
As hoped, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic crops up, noting how Cobain ‘hated being humiliated’ among other things. At present there’s no interview with Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, although director Brett Morgen has expressed a desire to have Dave involved in a later cut of the film.
Also featuring animation, a stream of consciousness narrative and plenty of unseen performance footage and behind-the-scenes video, Montage Of Heck looks to be shaping up to be everything Nirvana fans hoped for, apart from, of course, Kurt Cobain in the flesh.
