Charles R. Cross

Charles R. Cross is the author of nine books, including three New York Times bestsellers. His 2001 biography of Kurt Cobain, “Heavier Than Heaven,” has been published in 30 languages, and was called “One of the most moving and revealing books ever written about a rock star,” by the Los Angeles Times. Cross was Editor of The Rocket, the Seattle music magazine, and the first magazine to do a cover story on Nirvana, from 1986 through 2000. He writes for many newspapers and magazines, lectures on pop culture and — like everyone else who lived through the ‘90s — he’s presently at work on a memoir.
