still frekaed out about this story, and i think it's invasive that kurt cobain's old hair dresser snipped his hair and kept it like a stalker but whateverrrrr. anyway, this story came out a few weeks ago that his hair was going up for auction (FULL STORY HERE)- Six strands of Kurt Cobain‘s hair have been sold for $14,145 (£10,005) at auction.Portions of the proceeds will go to benefit Crew Nation which is awesome and i'm glad to hear it!
Iconic Auctions has now sold the strands of hair for thousands of dollars as part of its “The Amazing Music Auction”, which Blabbermouth reported also included personally owned, staged-used or signed musical memorabilia from Cobain and Nirvana as well as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin.
The auction house said of Cobain sale: “This one-of-a-kind artifact is entirely fresh-to-market and is accompanied by an impeccable lineage of provenance including photos of Kurt posing with the woman who cut this hair, scissors in hand, and a fantastic shot of the hair actually being cut! The lucky friend who trimmed the Nirvana front man’s iconic blond locks was an early confidant, Tessa Osbourne, who cut his hair in 1989 – well prior to his ‘Nevermind’ breakthrough – while on the ‘Bleach’ tour.
