Kurt Cobain left this world far too soon. He was a complicated personality, but he left behind many songs, wonderful memories, and a few pieces of hair as well. That hair is worth big money.
Cobain’s golden hair recently sold at auction for $14k. That is pretty impressive considering that there were only six strands in the lot. At $14,145 in total, that amounts to $2,357.50 per strand.
This hair came from Nirvana’s 1989 Bleach tour as Kurt got a trim on the road. TMZ noted that.
The winning bidder’s also taking home these pictures of Kurt’s haircut. He got the trim from his friend, Tessa Osbourne, and posed for a smiling snap with the scissors still in her hand.
This hair found its way to auction by means of a protected case, preserved under a plastic card. Iconic Auctions was the house responsible for unloading this famous DNA. We can only hope that whoever bought the hair plans to clone a new Cobain.
The longest strand measured at about 2.5 inches. So, we weren’t talking about very long locks. It will still make a great trophy in someone’s ultimate Nirvana collection.
