The profitable bid of $14,145 in “The Superb Music Public sale (Vol. I)” secured the six strands of hair that had been lower by the Nirvana frontman’s pal, Tessa Osbourne, whereas in Birmingham, England on the Bleach tour in October 1989. Presumably, the customer was both a little bit of a stalker-ish tremendous fan who wanted to personal an precise piece of the rock legend or a mad scientist/witch/warlock bent on reanimating the corpse of grunge with Cobain’s DNA. Both means, it’s most likely for the most effective if none of us ever finds out what turns into of the precious hair in query.
