  1. The origins of Nevermind actually came from Prince claiming a song I wrote as Alexander Nevermind called Sugar Walls performed by Sheena Easton.

    I usually like to draw connections to the songs I write and the connection to Sugar Walls was the song I wrote with Joe Elliott of Def Leppard named Pour Some Sugar On Me.

    In ’83 Kurt Cobain was on the road crew of Def Leppard’s Rock Till You Drop tour. I went to the May ’83 concert and later met Joe and Kurt. Over the next 11 years Kurt and I worked on many songs for many different artists.
