You don’t have to have seen Montage of Heck to know Kurt Cobain was in rough space at the time, struggling to get through their 23-song set that is posted below courtesy of

The remainder of the European was abruptly cancelled, and the band headed home to Seattle to rest up and recover. They were supposed to headline that summer’s edition of the Lollapalooza tour, but Kurt unfortunately took his own life a little over a month after this concert.

Gilles LeBlanc

Gilles LeBlanc literally fell into “alternative rock” wayyy back at Lollapalooza 1992, where he got caught in his first mosh pit watching some band named Pearl Jam. Since then, he’s spent the better part of his life looking for music to match the liberating rush he felt that day, with a particular chest-beating emphasis on stuff coming out of his native Canada. It took him awhile, but Gilles now writes feverishly about all things that rock (and or roll) through his ROCKthusiast alter ego.
