"It’s epic," Pavitt says of this pic, taken at Rome's Coliseum the morning after Nirvana's destructive gig. "He’s standing in front of a 50,000-capacity stadium, essentially projecting himself as a Christ figure. Christ as a rock star. I cannot believe I took this photo. Some divine force was guiding me that day."
"Some people refer to Kurt as like a martyr, he was a messiah. It’s a loaded photo. But I do feel that kurt’s music was very transformational. I’ve had so many people and say that his music changed my life. So this picture really rings true. There aren’t many rock personalities that could pull that off, other than Marley or Lennon."
