Well, if waking up without any sore joints today was a good feeling, all I had to do was read a headline about the baby that adorned Nirvana's Nevermind album turned 22 years old, to make me feel the affects of dementia, arthritis, menopause (wait, I'm a man) and other old people ailments. I even started putting cream under my eyes from the apparent crow's feet that instantaneously showed up.
Has it really been 20+ years? I remember being all grungy, wearing plaid shirts and JNCO jeans – way before the population of hipsters in Williamsburg did (well, the plaid shirt part, at least)....now I can't even wear that without someone thinking that I'm a hipster (how dare you), fuck you very much! – when Nevermind came out. I remember coming home from high school, putting on MTV (when they still played music) and watching Kurt Loder announce that Kurt Cobain was found dead of an apparent, self-inflicted shotgun wound. It's crazy how time flies.
And now this little fucker turned 22?!?! Jesus Christ, I'm not even married yet, I don't have any of my own rugrats....where have all the years gone? Ok, calm down; stop freaking out, man.
Sorry, I just saw my life pass before my eyes. Anyway, Spencer Elden (The Baby) recently turned 22 years old. The fine art student now studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where his father Rick let his infant son appear as a model for an up-and-coming band's new album in 1991.
He told CNN: 'When I am introduced, they introduce me as the Nirvana baby.
'My dad was an artist rigging special effects for Hollywood. They went to the local pool, threw me in the water and that was it.
'It was a friend-helping-a-friend kind of thing.'
- Chris Meyer
