Kurt Cobain filled dozens of notebooks with lyrics, drawings and writings about his plans for Nirvana and his thoughts about fame, the state of music and the people who bought and sold him and his music. More than 20 of these notebooks survived his many moves and travels, and have been locked in a safe since his death. His journals reveal an artist who loved music, who knew the history of rock, and who was determined to define his place in that history.
Obviously there is no story to speak of, just thughts from himself.
The impression you get is of an uneducated, immature and confused man. He lets vent to such hatred against people for being what he himself is and does, banging on about his white guilt and how he's going to change things from within. He can be funny in a darkly ironic way but there's a truely dark and revisionist side here. You can see him degenerate as his drug use takes hold.
As I say, I don't know that these jottings can really reveal the man, but what we have here has been well arranged to tell a story.
