Every couple of years a story pops up about the kid who served as the cover model for Nirvana’s Nevermind album. NPR caught up with the now 17-year-old Spencer Elden to find out how his photo was chosen, the reaction his friends have when discovering it was him on the cover of Nevermind, and what he’s up to now.
This quote from the story is pretty funny:
“Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis,” he says from his home in Los Angeles. “So that’s kinda cool. I’m just a normal kid living it up and doing the best I can while I’m here.”
