Cobain Dedicated Song To River Phoenix at Nirvana's Final L.A. Show
(hennemusic) Video of Nirvana's final Los Angeles concert has surfaced, courtesy of band friend and filmmaker Dave Markey. The footage features three songs from the December 30, 1993 show, including "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam" (which Kurt Cobain dedicates to actor River Phoenix, who died two months earlier), a cover of David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World", and "All Apologies", the second single from Nirvana's third and final studio release, "In Utero."
"20 years ago tonight, I stood on Kurt's side of the stage at my hometown's Los Angeles Forum and captured the last set I would see of this band," wrote Markey.
"A band that I had worked with, toured with; people that I would call my friends. A band that both the world and myself really loved (can't really say this has happened since.) Within just a few short months it would sadly all be over. I'm glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991." Check out the footage here.
