Kurt Cobain’s posthumous fame has created an entire industry of items celebrating the musicians’ brief, but eventful career. Perhaps, none of the available items are quite as strange and creepy as strands of his hair.
Iconic Auctions has announced that they will be auctioning off a number of items belonging to famous rock musicians. This will include a guitar signed and having belonged to the late Van Halen, original Prince studio recordings, and an amp having belonged to Kurt Cobain.
The most bizarre item on sale, certainly, consists of six strands of Kurt Cobain’s hair. According to the information officially provided, the hair was collected in 1989 while the group was on tour in the UK.
The statement goes on to explain that a woman by the name of Tessa Osbourne cut Cobain’s hair and held on to it. She later gifted it to an acquaintance. The auction for the hair strands begins at $2500, making this the most bizarre rock music memorabilia item since rock star action figures.
