The Photographer Who Shot Kurt Cobain - "The Last Session" by Jesse Frohman - LIVE BOOK signing Nov. 20th at the Spare Room, Hollywood
Jesse Frohman is known by some as the photographer who shot Kurt. In August of 1993, Frohman was commissioned by the London Observer's Sunday Magazine to photograph Nirvana in New York prior to performing at the iconic Roseland Ballroom. The photo shoot was supposed to last 5 hours at several locations throughout the city but when Frohman arrived as scheduled Cobain showed up notoriously late and not in the best condition. They set up a make shift studio in the basement of the hotel and in a relatively short amount of time Frohman was able to shoot the band there before heading up to the Roseland where he continued shooting the rehearsal. The now iconic images of Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl posing, greeting fans and performing were there last formal photography session before Cobain's untimely death about 10 months later.
The book: "Kurt Cobain: The Last Session " offers more than 100 images of Kurt and his Nirvana band mates as well as a candid interview and introduction by music journalist Jon Savage and an essay from Glenn O' Brien.
Jesse Frohman will be doing a book signing tonight, this Thursday, November 20th celebrating the release of Kurt Cobain - The Last Session by Jesse Frohman.
The celebration begins at 9pm and includes a special live performance by The Lovely Bad Things.
