If You Want To Destroy My Sweater...
It would be a costly decision in the case of Kurt Cobain’s comfy outerwear, which recently sold for $140,800 at auction.
And while we’re on the subject of relics and collectibles, Julien Live, the auction house that sold Cobain’s cardigan recently launched an auction for another rock and roll covetable, a first pressing of The Beatles White Album. According to the site:
It has been widely known among collectors that the four members of the Beatles kept numbers 1 through 4, but it was not commonly known that Starr was given the No.0000001 album. Starr has stated that he kept this album in a bank vault in London for over 35 years. Up to this time the lowest numbered UK first mono pressing album to come to market is No.0000005, which sold in 2008 for just under $30,000. This No.0000001 UK first mono pressing owned by a member of the Beatles is the lowest and most desirable copy that will ever become available.
Don’t worry, if you’re not in the market for a five figure piece of rock and roll history this holiday season there’s still hope: 1) get to Rock & Brews and enjoy for KISSMas 2015, a ten day celebration of holiday themed rock music along with great food and drink specials for everyone – K9’s to kiddos.
