Kurt Cobain's old roommate is reportedly selling a host of the Nirvana frontman's belongings on Craigslist.

The items for sale include a set of skis ($80) and a telephone ($55) as well as a video game called Kingman ($25). In the listing, the seller - a former member of the band Gruntruck - writes that he will be selling more of what he says are Cobain's possessions in the future. "i also have a lot more stuff of kurts, like magazine and clothes that i will be selling off soon. thank you for looking," he writes on the listing page, via Consequence Of Sound. Visit Craigslist for more information.

Last month a statue of a weeping Kurt Cobain was unveiled in Aberdeen, Washington - the hometown of the late Nirvana frontman. The city celebrated Kurt Cobain Day on February 20, what would have been the frontman's 47th birthday. The statue, which sees Cobain crying a single tear, is situated in the Aberdeen Museum of History. The day's festivities also included a gig and an appearance from Cobain's guitar teacher.

Neighbouring town Hoquiam will celebrate Nirvana Day on April 10 this year, when the band are being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Cobain was born and raised in Aberdeen, but did briefly live in Hoquiam.
