Soulsby interviewed over 200 musicians from bands that played and toured with Nirvana, including well-known alternative bands such as Hole, Mudhoney, Meat Puppets, Buzzcocks, Butthole Surfers, and the Jesus Lizard, as well as countless others from the alternative rock revolution. Readers get a more personal history of Nirvana than ever before, including Nirvanas consideration of nearly a dozen previously unmentioned candidates for drummer before settling on David Grohl- a recounting of Nirvanas famously disastrous South American shows from never-before-heard sources- and recollections from their first manager, who hosted the bands first ever gig.I Found My Friends relives Nirvanas meteoric rise from the days before the legend to through their increasingly damaged superstardom. More than twenty years after Kurt Cobains tragic death, Nick Soulsby removes the posthumous halo from the brow of Kurt Cobain and travels back through time to observe one of rock and rolls most critical bands as no one has ever seen them before.
