A former roommate of Kurt Cobain, who has apparently been hording some of his former housemate's stuff, has taken to Craiglist to try and make a quick buck by selling a bunch of the ex-Nirvana frontman's stuff.
The seller, who claims to have lived with Cobain while he was a member of a band called Gruntruck, says that this initial sale of Cobain's former possessions is just the beginning.
The item description goes into detail, saying: "Hey Seattle what's up, I used to live with Kurt Cobain back in the 90s and I have been holding on to a bunch of his stuff that he left in a box when he moved out. He owed us rent and said he would get the box when he came back and gave us money but he never came back, then when he was famous he never really talked to any of us again because courtney never liked us but she's a dick so no hard felings."
"I also have a lot more stuff of Kurt's", he wrote on Craigslist. "Like magazines and clothes that I will be selling off soon. Thank you for looking."
Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound on or around April 5th 1994. Items belonging to him are of particular interest to collectors and, assuming these items are genuine, will likely be sold for quite a fee - if indeed anyone believes the guy selling them.
Also, who would have thought Kurt was a fan of skiing? The listing elaborates slightly: "Kurt was learning to skii when i met him, we went to mount baker a few times to hit the slopes, these are his skiis but i do not have the poles or anything. the bindings are pretty loose but they are good skiis, but of course they are a lot cooler because they are kurts. They are $80"
Kurt Cobain's skis. Allegedly.
