I adore the photos of Kurt in Rome (1989), although he looks very sad and kinda lost in most of them. Like a little squirrel wearing lots of clothes, if I may say so ❤ Kurt had a nervous break down during a show, his passport & wallet was stolen on a train and he missed home and his girlfriend Tracy, so Bruce and Jon decided to give Kurt a day off from touring. They spent one day sightseeing the wonders of Rome and Jon helped Kurt to phone home to Tracy. They also bought a new guitar for Kurt.
