Early in March, Da Capo is set to publish a "definitive" biography of Nirvana by Everett True, who covered the Seattle music scene for a Brit mag called Melody Maker.

What a strange choice of language: journalists have been digging through the ashes of the Cobain estate for years; even Hollywood had its say. Is there really anything left to define?

But.

But, but, but...

Da Capo publishes the best music books in the business --- the "Best Music Writing" series is great fun --- and it's unlikely they'd sic True on us unless there was good reason. After a decade of conspiracy theories, maybe we're ready for something more: a love letter, a Valentine's Day card, a mash note, a reminder of what made Kurt Cobain so important to begin with. And True, who wrote some of the first pieces on the punk refugees that kickstarted the grunge movement, might write the best love letter of all.

Stay tuned.
