I was married to Gary in 1991 when Nevermind came out. He was a bassist in a Boston area band called 'The Box.' Immediately, he was convinced Nirvana would permanently change music, and we listened to our new Nevermind cassette over and over driving from Boston toward Poughkeepsie, NY. It was on this drive we were struck by a drunk driver and Gary sadly did not survive.
