Rare Nirvana Live Footage in LA Discovered
Hidden footage of Nirvana playing their last ever gig in LA has been posted online by a friend of the band.

Dave Markey has become a documentary maker since the time he filmed Nirvana playing a show in December 1993 at the Great Western Forum in Los Angeles. The band were halfway through recording their final album "In Utero" together, shortly before Kurt Cobain took his life.

Writing about his newly-released video, Markey said:

"20 years ago tonight (December 30, 1993) I stood on Kurt's side of the stage at my hometown's Los Angeles Forum and captured the last set I would see of this band. A band that I had worked with, toured with; people that I would call my friends. A band that both the world and myself really loved (can't really say this has happened since).

"Within just a few short months it would sadly all be over. I'm glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991."
