Whos's that guy swimming in the pool? Come on! doesn't it remind you something? the dollar on the hook?
Ok, I'll help you. He is Spencer Elden and he had become famous when he was just a newborn child for being the protagonist of an album cover that is probably the musical icon of a generation.... Yes he is the floating baby of the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind!
17 years are passed since Spencer Elden's parents were paid just $200 for allowing him to be photographed underwater by photographer Kirk Weddle. It was that photograph was destined to become incredibly famous being used as the cover image for 'Nevermind,' the second album release by Seattle grunge band Nirvana.
Nirvana, formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain, was referred to in the media as the "spokesman of a generation". After a brief, but whopping success, on April 8, 1994, Cobain was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head at his Seattle home, effectively dissolving Nirvana.
Now a 17 year's old high school student, "water baby" Elden recently re-created the album's cover in the same pool where it was originally shot- the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center in Pasadena, California. With only a difference: he is in shorts this time, thank goodness!.
