Next month, Nirvana fans will be able to get their hands on the 20th anniversary reissue of the band's third and final studio album, In Utero . Touring guitarist Pat Smear says that while he was sad that the band came to an end when frontman Kurt Cobain died in 1994, he cherishes the memories of his time with the group.
"My Nirvana experience was much different than the other three guys," he tells Rolling Stone . "For me, it was really new and exciting. There were dark periods, too. But there wasn't a dark cloud over the whole thing."
The Super Deluxe edition of the release will feature Nirvana's complete "Live and Loud" concert recorded on December 13, 1993, at Pier 48 in Seattle, which Smear notes was once of the group's best live performances.
"We were on that night," he explains. "If you listen to the shows from back then, it's just so obvious how into it Kurt was."
The 20th anniversary editions of In Utero will be available in stores and online at digital retailers on September 24. In addition to the "Live and Loud" concert DVD, the Super Deluxe version includes more than 40 previously unreleased demos, rehearsal tracks, B-sides and live performances spread out over three CDs.
