Danny Goldberg, who served as Nirvana’s manager and published a book titled “Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain” this year, will talk about Cobain and sign copies of the book at Labyrinth Books in Princeton, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m.
Princeton Record Exchange is co-sponsoring the free event. For information, visit labyrinthbooks.com.
A review in Rolling Stone described the book as “a warmly told, richly detailed memoir that focuses solely on the three and a half years Goldberg worked with the band. … Goldberg accomplishes the goal he strives for: admirably, he’s more interested in delving into Cobain’s music and creativity than relitigating the causes of his tragic suicide. If anything, he’s added a fascinating perspective to one of rock’s most harrowing stories, one that will certainly enhance the late icon’s legacy.”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cobain’s suicide, at the age of 27.
Goldberg — whose many-faceted career as a manager, record company executive, publicist and journalist began in the 1960s — currently manages artists such as Steve Earle, The Waterboys, Bettye LaVette, Martha Wainwright and Jill Sobule through his company, Gold Village Entertainment.
