How mad is this story? But on the face of it, seems genuine (we’ll see). Allegedly Kurt Cobain’s old roommate has posted an advert on Craigslist that claims that he has some stuff that used to belong to the Nirvana frontman. As of yet the identity of the man is still unknown, however he claims to have a box of old stuff that used to belong to Kurt while the pair were living together in Capitol hill. There are three items for sale in the Craigslist advert which include a pair of ski’s, a phone and an old computer game. And he says he has more! See items for sale below.
This is exactly what he had to say on the placed advert: _______________________________________________________________________________________ “These items are still for sale, sorry i was away from email all weekend. it is monday now and i am back at work and have email, so i can respond. alot of people have asked, i played bass for a short time in gruntruck back in the 90s. any other questions feel free to ask. 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 am sure it would be easy for you to think that this stuff is fake, but i have pictures of kurt with some of it and i have som friends that will talk to you that will say that this is kurts stuff. we lived together in capitol hill and for a short time in olympia, i was in some very popular bands back then but now i am not playing any music anymore, but if anybody reading this wants to jam, let me know heh heh. some of this stuff is pretty historical as he was using it whem he was signing his first record contracts, like the phone i know i think he used to talk on the phone to people in LA. that is why it is expensive. the Swatch phone is a twin phone which means that two people can talk on it at the same time, i remember in the commercials that two people would talk on it at the same time, like a girl would listen in while the other girl was talking, it is in really good condition and is $55. 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 This TOMY game is called “kingman” and is kindof like donkey kong. kurt liked to play this game a lot, it is in good condition but there is some corossion near the battery part. it is still cool tho, and you can have it for $25. I am willing to meet in belltown near the croc or at the sculpture park, but you can also come to my apartment if you are interested in these items. i also have a lot more stuff of kurts, like magazine and clothes that i will be selling off soon. thank you for looking”. _______________________________________________________________________________________ It remains to be seen weather this story is genuine or not, but we will keep you updated on any news as it comes.
