Spencer Elden’s Family Was Paid £154 When He Appeared On Nirvana Album Cover


He was four months old…

(BBC) – Spencer Elden was the baby on the front of the 1991 Nirvana album Nevermind and to mark the anniversary he’s made the iconic picture again.

But this time clothes were involved.

“It’s cool but weird to be part of something so important that I don’t even remember.

“It’s strange that I did this for five minutes when I was four months old and it became this really iconic image.”

Spencer is now an artist living in LA.

His parents were paid £154 for the original shoot and he was paid the same amount earlier this month for the recreation.

The original photo was taken by Kirk Weddle, a friend of Spencer’s dad.

He’s never met the members of Nirvana and even though the album sold more than 30 million copies, as far as I  can tell, he hasn’t received any more cheddar.

To me that seems a decent kick in the garbage. But what a story to tell…
