Butch Vig Didn't Know How To Deal With Kurt Cobain's Mood Swings

(Rock News Desk) Nirvana producer Butch Vig says he didn't know how to deal with Kurt Cobain's mood swings while he and the band were recording their iconic Nevermind album.

The twentieth anniversary of the landmark release has reminded Vig about the difficult times he endured in April 1990, when he recorded demos with Nirvana, and the following year when they tracked the record.

It propelled the band into superstardom but also laid the foundations of their demise with Cobain's suicide in 1994. "They rolled up in a van for that first session. They're driven 1900 miles non-stop and they probably hadn't taken a bath or a shower in three or four days," Vig tells Rolling Stone. "Kurt was charming and witty, but he would go through these mood swings. He'd be totally engaged then all of a sudden a light switch would go off and he'd go sit in the corner and completely disappear into himself. more on this story
