Craigslist Ad for Kurt Cobain's Belongings a Hoax
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.04.2014



As previously reported, an ad appeared on Craigslist recently proported to be from the former bassist of Gruntruck selling possessions that were once Kurt Cobain's. Well, not so fast. As it turns out, it was all a hoax. Sub Pop Records receptionist Derek Erdman told Revolt that he posted the ad and that he doesn't even own the possessions; they were pictures he found online.

Erdman told the site that he came up with the idea when he was supposed to be working on something else. He said, "I created a diversion. Then I ignored it and went back to work. A few hours later I did an interview with CBC radio about it. Later that night I met a TV news crew (with cameras!) at the aforementioned Safeway for an interview, but they called my bluff and asked for ID. I told them that I was a one time bass player for '90s band Gruntruck. They didn't buy it, and they were visibly not happy about me wasting their time, I was wearing a flannel shirt though."

He added, "I've gotten a lot of replies from 'serious collectors' and people who will pay for shipping. Have you ever shipped skis? That sounds like it would be really difficult."
