Meet the Naked Baby from the Nirvana Album

Remember seeing this album cover everywhere in the 90’s?

Nirvana Nevermind

Well meet the naked baby himself, Spencer Elden, now 17.

Baby On Nevermind Cover

From the Wikipedia article about him:

Nirvana considered using a stock photograph of a swimming baby, but when that proved too expensive, they hired photographer Kirk Weddle. Weddle’s friends, Renata and Rick Elden, allowed their son Spencer to be photographed for about $200. The hook, line, and dollar were superimposed later. After seeing the photo, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana’s lead singer) and his wife Courtney Love agreed that they would take Spencer out to dinner when he got older.

  1. Wow, I’m old. I wonder if she actually, “Took him out.” Doubtful.

  2. Talking about Courtney Love, I see no doubt (and no referations to Gwen Stefani) on the “taking him out” thing…

  3. Makes you feel old for sure. It’s like the Bee girl from the Blind Melon’s “No rain”;vid=95834 old interview but she is 24 now.
