Michael Jackson's white glove, Freddie Mercury's jumpsuit, Eric Clapton's guitar – all priceless rock artifacts, and all financially out of reach for the vast majority of music fans.

But there's good news for collectors with more modest incomes: A Seattle man claiming to be Kurt Cobain's old roommate is selling the late musician's skis on Craigslist, all for the slightly low price of $800. (The poles are not included.)

18 Legendary Artists with Fewer Grammys Than Lorde

Originally posted 01/27/2014 01:00PM

When Lorde won two awards (song of the year and best pop solo performance) at the 2014 Grammys, she didn't just become the third-youngest winner in the ceremony's history. Barely a year into her career, the 17-year-old Kiwi also surpassed dozens of industry legends in the great list of Grammy winners in the sky.

Whether they've only won one Grammy, or are still waiting for their first golden gramophone entirely, here are some of the musical superstars who have taken home fewer Grammys than Lorde. (A note: We're only counting competition Grammys. Lifetime achievement awards don't count, nor do inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame.)

Kurt Cobain's Mom Selling His Childhood Home

Kurt Cobain's Mom Selling Late Nirvana Rocker's Childhood Home

Originally posted 09/26/2013 10:15AM

This month marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, and fans aren't just able to buy a new "super deluxe" box set to celebrate the occasion. They can also buy the childhood home of late frontman Kurt Cobain, complete with his mattress.

Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, is putting the tired, 1.5-story bungalow two hours southwest of Seattle on the market this week.

To help sell it, the family is offering a glimpse into the early life of its tortured and talented son through photos shot at the house, including one of a chocolate-frosted birthday cake for the then youngster and a shot of a teenage Cobain smiling, guitar in hand, in his messy room.

Nirvana's Surviving Members Recall Genius & Pain of Kurt Cobain

Originally posted 09/26/2011 02:30PM

When Kurt Cobain killed himself on April 5, 1994, he left behind two shell-shocked musicians who suddenly lost a close friend – but not their desire to make music.

"I remember the day after Kurt died, waking up and thinking, 'Wow, I get to wake up again. Okay. Make good with what you've got,' " Dave Grohl said Saturday in a radio interview with Jon Stewart to mark the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind.

Asked if he thought he wouldn't be able to enjoy music again, Krist Novoselic said he had felt the opposite. "It was so much reality," Novoselic said, and he recalled thinking to himself: "No, I'm going to live."
