Rare Nirvana Footage of Final Gig at LA Forum

by Lucy Black

This rare footage of Nirvana playing their last gig ever was captured by documentary maker and friend of the band, Dave Markey.  He shot it from backstage in December of '93 at the LA Forum during Nirvana's In Utero tour. 

Watching this footage, I can't help but wonder what Kurt Cobain was thinking at the time.  Jaded?  Over it?  Just trying to get through the gig & be done with it?  Was he high?  Depressed?  All of the above?  It's still sad to look back at just how many great artists and musicians lives were wasted due to drug overdose.
