This cigarette butt was plucked a Nirvana show played at the Palace in Melbourne Australia on February 2nd 1992.
Nirvana were just on the verge of superstardom. I got this cigarette butt from my friend Carl, he was a glassy at the Palace during the afternoon all ages show.
He scored the job of replenishing their beer rider in the band room fridge while the support act the Meanies were playing. The stress of success was clearly already showing on Kurt even then. Carl said he was smoking like crazy. Carl emptied the ashtray three times in the space of an hour. On one of these occasions he stuck a few butts in his pocket as a bit of keepsake.
He later gave one of those butts to me. This is what I’m (forced) to sell today.
Seltsam. Nur 500 Dollar für eine Zigarettenkippe von Kurt Cobain und keiner will sie haben. Banausen.
