Kurt Cobain: The Last Session

WEST HOLLYWOOD — Jesse Frohman’s photo shoot with Kurt Cobain in July of 1993 will always be the 30 minutes of his life he will never forget.

Cobain was three and a half hours late and asked Frohman for a bucket.  The shoot had all the indicators of a classic.

Frohman’s book, Kurt Cobain: The Last Session, is the result of that fateful day, when the photographer and the rocker teamed up for a very real connection.

This Saturday, Frohman will sign copies of his book, Kurt Cobain: The Last Session, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Morrison Hotel Gallery in West Hollywood.  The event is open to the public and the books can be purchased at the signing.

The book is published by Thames and Hudson.

The Morrison Hotel Gallery is located within the Sunset Marquis Hotel at 1200 Alta Loma Road in West Hollywood.

Rational Animal reached out to The Kills for their help supporting the charity’s latest project. Hince was moved to support the group and created the photograph of bandmate Alison Mosshart in bed with his dog, Archie.

The photo is a modern-day homage to Terry O’Neill’s photograph of Bridget Bardot and her dog in bed.  The image of Mosshart and Archie has been used to promote fundraising for Rational Animal.

The Kills are known for dynamic music and fun and compelling performances.  The group was founded in 2000.

Rational Animal will debut its series of notecards, Artists with Animals, at Bookmarc.  The set of 10 cards features legendary artists and their pets.

Bookmarc was founded by Marc Jacobs in 1984. It is has supported 75 charities and uses the platform for humanitarian efforts.

Morrison Hotel Gallery was created by ex-record company exec Peter Blachley, music retailer Richard Horowitz and music photographer Henry Diltz with author and director Timothy White.
