When I was introducing the record to the company I said to them, if we worked really hard, and we got a little lucky with the video, and the band didn’t implode, that over the course of a year we could probably sell half a million records.
Quote by Gary Gersh, of A&R DGC Records, about Nirvana’s second album Nevermind (1991). The record would knock Michael Jackson off the number one slot, become one of the most iconic design covers and eventually sell 30 million records.
Great quote. Love the band and this album. Saw something a while back featuring the baby on the cover–he’s all grown up, of course, but weird seeing him in his twenties now.
I’ve been meaning to include them in a Line(s) of the Day for a while now. Kurt and the band had such an influence. I bet that guy uses that line at parties!
Well that turned out to be a nice surprise then, didn’t it?
Turns out he made some money out of it too! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UcGkTKwQ7Y
