Came for this.

I don't think anyone can beat Weird Al's description of Nirvana:

We're so loud and incoherent
Boy, this oughta bug your parents
...
A garage band from Seattle
Well it sure beats raisin' cattle

How much for the shotgun?

If I had an extra $40,000, I would gladly pay it for one of Kurt Cobain's fully functional guitars.
For a POS bass that wasn't even his, not so much.

How much did you pay for the chunk of his guitar
The one he ruthlessly smashed at the end of the show?
And how much will he pay for a brand new guitar
One which he'll ruthlessly smash at the end of another show?

That would pay for a lot of Epiphones.

/off to practice

I saw Pete Townsend smash a guitar a few years ago. Well, not so much smash it as throw it into the air in a moment of drunken stupidity. Part of it kind of cracked a bit when it hit the floor.

What about his smashed widow? How much does she go for?
 
2012-11-01 11:09:46 AM  
That's nothin'. I got a fully WORKING guitar the other day for only two hundred!

It'll be bought by an albino.

The guitar, or his hip?

Whoa! The Doors bass didn't get near that much.

Damn you.

You too. Especially you.

Wait, Nirvana? Is that the band that did a couple of pretty good things in the early 90's before the lead singer ate a shotgun sandwich, thereby making them geniuses to be glorified among all the other great musicians through the history of our time? $40K for one of their guitars?

Thank f'ing god Axl Rose didn't kill himself in 1993 right before Use Your Illusion was released.

I wonder what this guy got for that symbol.

Really, if I was gonna get a piece of a smashed guitar, I'd prefer Paul Simonon's bass.

Maybe he gave it to Prints.

I bought my Fender Squire for $60 at the Flea Market. I wish I could afford something nice.

The one on the cover of London Calling? It's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Art Garfunkelel was the one with the guitar.
