Decades after Kurt Cobain's guttural rasp seduced Generation X from its collective bedroom and into the post-punk clubs of 1990s Seattle, the late Nirvana frontman remains a talisman for disaffected youth the world over.This empathic quality ensured that the songwriter's work remained relevant, Goldberg said, even to teenagers born after Cobain's death, a world away from the drizzly Pacific Northwest of his formative years.The depressive but singular talent who grew up in the misty woods two hours west of Seattle morphed into a rock god when "Nevermind," the second of Nirvana's three studio albums, catapulted the alt rock group to stratospheric fame and spawned the cult of Kurt.Goldberg met Cobain in 1990, when Nirvana were up and coming but hoping to steer their unique blend of scruffy punk, raw metal and Beatles-inspired melodies toward a broader audience.The instant classic booted pop star Michael Jackson from the top of the U.S. charts and saw Nirvana shift the course of pop culture, inspiring music, fashion and ethos.In the 3 1/2 years he worked with Cobain, Goldberg witnessed Nirvana's spectacular ascent.
