I was reminded of this song this morning as I woke from a camping air mattress due to water damage in our living room.
I slept in our living room. And for the record, the water damage is not our fault.
Anyways, Nirvana's performance of Leadbelly's "In the Pines" at the closing of their great MTV Unplugged special shows what potential was squandered in Mr. Cobain's suicide. The album was released after his death, but I remember watching it the same night it was announced on MTV News that the tragedy had happened. It was a few months before I graduated from high school and entered the Coast Guard Academy. I will always associate high school with Nirvana.
