1992 was a long, strange trip for Nirvana. By the time the rock and roll superstardom express had rolled into Brazil on January 23rd, 1993, the band had ousted Michael Jackson from the top of the charts, played Saturday Night Live, toured the world and appeared on countless magazine covers. As if this wasn’t enough action, Kurt Cobain also found the time to get married and have a kid. Those last two acts alone are enough to send some people spiraling into insanity. Add all the rock star stuff to it and it’s easy to see why Kurt Cobain was a little frazzled on this January night in Brazil. As of yet, the spit riddled camera lenses featured in this video have not shown up on Ebay. But give Courtney Love time. Fast forward to approximately the 5:15 mark if, you know, you don’t like to rock and stuff. That’s when the madness begins.
Recording drums is a bit of a lost art. Engineers used to spend a year experimenting with mics before they were allowed near a Fairlight or a Synclavia (old school samplers for the young among you).
