What A Great Gift Idea
People are always looking for the Ultimate Gift for a friend or family member. What else would make a better gift than something signed by a Sport or Movie star or their favourite Musician or Band. Imagine seeing the look on their face when they unwrap their gift and are blown away by what they now have just received. What a great gift idea, Hey!
Nirvana Signed Memorabilia Makes The Ultimate Gift Idea to any die hard fan. It means something, it’s special, it comes with a certificate of authenticity and most importantly it will increase in value. Most gifts whether for Birthday, Christmas or just because you love and respect the person don’t increase in value as time goes on but Signed Memorabilia does. Take for instance the sad and untimely death of basketballer Kobe Bryant the demand for his memorabilia skyrocketed as well as the prices the day after his death.
Same as when Michael Jackson Passed away his signed memorabilia increased by thirty percent minutes after details of his death were announced. Kurt Cobain’s autograph is extremely rare and quite expensive but Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic’s autograph is still reasonably priced even on Nirvana memorabilia. Either way Nirvana signed memorabilia is the ultimate gift that will increase in value.
My Father is a huge Beach Boys fan and I recently bought him a framed picture signed by Mike Love and Brian Wilson, he was so happy when he opened it he immediately put it up on his wall in the living room and I get to see it every time I visit and remember the joy it gave him.
Your Love One or friend will be so surprised and happy with this amazing gift and will show it off in their home for many years to come. I also know the remaining members of The Beach Boys days are sadly numbered and I will definitely telling my father to get the items valued.
Alternatively there is also some cheaper and more affordable Nirvana Memorabilia that can be found on eBay and Amazon. Although most of this type of Memorabilia is more novelty type items that won’t increase in value they still look good and make the perfect gift for any occasion. Things ranging from rare photos, books and even glassware. My favourite though is the picture frame that comes with photos and a plaque containing the history of your favourite band, actor or sport star.
Kurt Cobain came into the world on the 20th of February 1967 at the Grays Harbor hospital located in the small town of Aberdeen, Washington. His Mother Wendy and Father Donald doted on their firstborn as soon as they laid eyes on him for the first time. Kurt was an extremely talented young boy who was gifted at drawing and would often surprise family members of his ability to drawer characters from Disney with ease and perfection. He also showed early signs of his musicianship playing the piano and singing.
Kurt’s anguish when he’s parent divorced when he was nine. It was something he would never get over and his behaviour suffered because of it. Both his parents meet new partners which Kurt would not accept. He lived for a time with his Father but his resentment towards his stepmother made things difficult and he was forced to live with his Grandparents for sometime. It was during the time he was living with his Mother when he was a teenager and she caught him with a girl his mother kicked him out and he was suddenly homeless, living under a bridge for a short time so the legend goes.
He also lived with a friend’s family who was quite religious but was asked to leave after smashing a window to enter the house while no one was home. He also would stay in the same hospital where he was born spending time in the waiting room to escape the Aberdeen cold. Kurt eventually gets his own accommodation living with his new girlfriend Tracey Marander. Tracey supportered Kurt while he went from employment to employment and at one stage Kurt was the Janitor at the school he used to attend. Kurt Cobain had an interest in the local punk scene and going to see such bands as Black Flag and the Melvins. He also was obsessed with a girl named Tobi Vail who he later started dating and would become the subject of most of the songs on Nevermind.
Kurt knew Kris Novaselic while attending Aberdeen high school. He asked Kris to start a band with him but Kris was not interested at the beginning, but finally agreed after hearing one of Kurt’s demo tapes Kurt gave to him. Nirvana went through a period of different drummers one of which was Chad Channing, the band cut some demos and after being signed to an independent label, Sub Pop, they cut their first album Bleach which became a favorite for College Radio Stations.
The band start making a name for themselves in Seattle. Kurt was introduced to Dave Grohl and Kurt and Kris auditioned Dave Grohl as their new drummer after Chad Channing left the band. In 1990 Nirvana signed to DGC Records after not being happy with Subpop and begin recording, Nevermind. With the success of Smells like teen spirit being played on MTV the album began selling at a phenomenal pace and launching the band to stardom. They would tour the world and release another album In Utero
Kurt’s relationship with all kinds of drugs from Marijuana and LSD to eventually becoming dependent on Heroin. Kurt always had an interest in drugs from sniffing glue to smoking Marijuana with friends. He would take large amounts of LSD when he was living with Tracey. Kurt suffered a stomach condition that left him in bouts of unrelenting pain and he says Heroin was away to relieve him from his condition. Cross recalls how his addiction became a concern to friends when he would often take dangerous amounts. His Heroin use began to disrupt his obligations with the band and the Nevermind Tour began to suffer. By the time Kurt meets Courtney Love he is a full fledged Junkie who can’t be saved.
Kurt’s first meeting with Courtney just before a gig in Portland, Oregon. After a quick exchange they began wrestling on the floor in front of a jukebox while onlookers looked on in amaze. Kurt offered Courtney a peace offering after the tussle on the floor, a sticker of Chim Chim, the “Speed Racer” monkey. They parted that night but would see each other again backstage of an L7 concert in L.A. Kurt was drinking cough syrup straight from the bottle when Courtney produced the exact same bottle from her purse. Courtney gave Kurt her phone number and Kurt called her later that night.
They started dating and only a few months later they got married in Hawaii with Dave Grohl as best man and Kurt wearing his Pajamas. They then had a baby, Francis Bean Cobain but both being heavily on Heroin, Francis was taken from them for a short time. Many times they both went to Rehab to unsuccessfully clean up. Kurt Cobain ended up shooting himself with a rifle in the Garage of his Lake Washington Boulevard home. He was discovered by an Electrician on April the 8th 1994. Kurt was 27. There was a public vigil that drew a large crowd and where Courtney read the suicide note.
