The Nirvana bassist "offers specific platforms for electoral reform . . . as well as charming anecdotes about rock ‘n’ roll as a pursuit of happiness" (Sarah Vowell, The New York Times Book Review).
A memoir of both music and politics, Of Grunge and Government tells Krist Novoselic’s story of how during his years with Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, the band made a point of playing benefits-the Rock for Choice show, a concert for gay rights, a fundraising gig for the Balkan Women’s Aid Fund-and how in the ensuing years he has dedicated himself to being a good citizen and participating in American democracy.
In this book he shares stories about making music and making a statement-as well as inspiring ideas for anyone who wants to advance progressive causes, to become a more active part of the community, and to make sure our votes count and our voices are heard.
