I remember after that show, Kurt got himself in a bit of bother. He ended up at the Royal hospital that night. We hung out after the show. It was the night in Belfast that he bought that famous red-and-black stripey sweater he used to be photographed in so much afterwards.
He bought it from a fan who was hanging around backstage. I met Dave Grohl loads of times over the years. We got to know Dave really early on — and he knew we were massive fans. He was really cool to us. Our very first UK shows coincided with when Kurt died. We were 17 and really heartbroken. He came back and he was extra devastated.
But if I need a masterclass in genius economic songwriting, I do come back to Nevermind and listen to the whole thing. There was lots of small-town boredom, that suburban ennui. All the people who liked punk and metal were friends and everyone else saw us as freaks — but music was an escape from the sectarianism that went on back then.

There were no barriers between metal and punk for us. And then Nirvana came along and it was so relatable. I remember the first time hearing it, thinking it was really good. That was the first time they really meant something rather than a band I merely liked. I loved Nevermind for the same reason I love Never Mind the Bollocks by the Sex Pistols — they sound amazing, the songs are incredibly infectious and you cannot just listen to one track. Once you put it on, you want to hear every aspect of it.
My generation of teenage boys and girls were all over Nirvana. Kurt Cobain was already a legend at that point. The Unplugged [live] album really had an impact on me. I used to hang around the Central Bank [in the centre of Dublin] and it was Nirvana central there. Everyone had the T-shirts and the grunge look and we talked about Nirvana all the time. It was a great way for young people to be able to express themselves.

A lot of people had huge frustration with the world and they were able to convey that though what Nirvana had done. Spencer Elden was just a few months old when his parents got a call from underwater photographer Kirk Weddle, who asked if he could use their newborn baby as part of a photoshoot for an up-and-coming band called Nirvana.

Initially, Weddle tried to photograph babies at a swimming class, but none of those images fit what Geffen Records was looking for, so they wound up choosing one of the stills that Weddle took of Elden. Later on, a fish hook with a dollar bill was eventually added, to make it look as if the baby was swimming towards it.
After Nevermind was a big hit, they came back to me to shoot the band underwater. Today, Elden lives in Los Angeles with his mother and focuses on making art and growing tomatoes. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain pursues him, as the wheel of the wagon follows the hoof of the ox that draws it. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought happiness pursue him like his own shadow that never leaves him. In them hatred will not cease. This is the Law Eternal.
They do not restrain themselves. But those who recognize the Law end their quarrels soon. He may display it on himself but he has not merited the yellow robe who is not free from depravities, who disregards temperance and truth. They never arrive at truth. They arrive at truth. The evil doer suffers in this world and he grieves in the next; he mourns in both.
Afflicted he grieves in the visualization of his sinful deeds.

He rejoices, rejoices exceedingly in the visualization of his pure deeds. Greater his torment when he is in the place of evil. The righteous man is happy here, he is happy hereafter. Greater is his delight in the blissful place. He shares not the blessings of the Good Life.
Vigilance is the path to Life Eternal. Thoughtlessness is the path to death. The reflecting vigilant die not. The heedless are already dead. The wise distinctly understand this. Therefore they delight in wakeful watching. They graze in the pastures of the Aryas, the Noble Ones. Meditative, persevering, ever strenuous in endeavour, the tranquil ones attain Nirvana, the highest freedom and happiness.
Continually grows the glory of that man who is wakeful and mindful, whose deeds are pure, whose acts are deliberate, who is self-controlled and who lives according to Law. By endeavour, by vigilance, by discipline and self-control, let the wise man make for himself an island which no flood can overwhelm.

Fools and witless persons give themselves to sloth. The wise value vigilance as their best treasure. Be not a sluggard. Have no dalliance with lust and sense delights. He who meditates with earnestness attains great joy. When the prudent man overcomes sloth by vigilance he ascends to the terrace of wisdom.
Sorrowless he surveys the sorrowful crowd. This wise man regards the foolish as the mountaineer from his high peak looks at those who are dwelling on the plains. Vigilant among the heedless, awake among the sleepy, the wise one forges ahead even as a charger outdistances a weak horse. By vigilance did Indra rise to the lordship of the gods. Vigilance is always praised, heedlessness ever deprecated. A Bhikkhu who delights in vigilance, who sees the danger of heedlessness, advances like a lire consuming fetters, small or large. A Bhikkhu who delights in vigilance, who sees the danger of heedlessness, will not fall; he is close upon Nirvana.
Just as a fletcher makes straight his arrow, the wise man makes straight his crooked thinking. This is difficult to guard.
