Nirvana are news again, this time for non-musical reasons. In a new attempt to make some cash off the band memorabilia, Krist Novoselic's bass guitar, which Kurt Cobain so legendarily smashed to bits in the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video, is going to go on auction at Christie's on 29th November. It is expected the piece will go for at least 25,000 British pound.
According to sources of The Independent, the guitar was bought in a pawn shop, knowing that it was going to be destroyed durng the shooting of the clip. After the shoot, one of the teen extras took the pieces home with him. Now, those parts can financially sort the present owner out for this year. One man's trash, and all that.
