30th Anniversary of Nevermind: Everett True signs to Criminal Records for Imminent Release of his Book “Live Through This (Part 1: Nirvana)”
Known for bringing Nirvana to the masses, Everett was the first outside journalist to interview the band. Sent to America to cover the Seattle underground scene for UK music paper Melody Maker in 1989, upon his return Everett wrote a hyper-enthusiastic article that featured such (then unknown) bands as Soundgarden, Mudhoney and Nirvana and was later credited with breaking 'grunge' to the outside world.
“It was Everett who brought the label men scurrying to Seattle with their cheque books after writing excitedly in Melody Maker about the city’s independent rock scene in 1989” Carol Clerk, UNCUT
