Kurt Cobain founded the band whose music has been described as the soundtrack to "Generation X", and now one of Nirvana's frontman’s most famous guitars is on display at the Museum of Style Icons at Newbridge Silverware, Newbridge, Co. Kildare from Thursday 5th to Sat 7th of May, 2022.
In what is a world exclusive event for the home of style in Ireland, Newbridge Silverware will display Kurt Cobain’s 1969 Fender Mustang, Lake Placid blue finish electric guitar. The left-handed guitar was used by the Nirvana frontman in the band’s seminal and culture defining 1991 music video, "Smells Like Teen Spirit".
Cobain and the music of Nirvana are regarded as being the fire starter to the alternative rock revolution and generations later is still igniting the alternative rock world. Cobain’s painting of Michael Jackson and his own "Nevermind" Australian Tour 1992 laminated personal back stage pass is also on display.
