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."
