Handwritten letter by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana to David Geffen

A single-sheet, two-sided handwritten letter by Kurt Cobain addressed to David Geffen, creator of DGC Records. In the letter, Cobain expresses to his “big boss” Geffen his anger about a September 1992 Vanity Fair magazine article, written by Lynn Hirschberg. The article titled “Strange Love” accuses his wife, musician Courtney Love, of taking drugs while pregnant with their baby. In the letter to Geffen, Cobain states that Love stopped using right after she found out about her pregnancy and was visiting a pediatrician, and he himself has been in rehab for 18 days. He ends the letter with “I’m so extremely pissed off about this piece of trash journalism that I’ll lay anything on the line for the love of my wife and daughter.”
