Kurt Cobain's LA Apartment Listed on Airbnb

It is amazing what journalists find out when searching for news. This is definitely one of those jaw dropping celeb updates. It has been revealed that the Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's apartment has been listed on Airbnb. The apartment is located in Los Angeles' Fairfax, on Spaulding Avenue. Cobain and Courtney Love lived there in the period between 1991 and 1992 while Love was pregnant with their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. In a related story, Frances is releasing a documentary about his father and it has already sparked a lot of debate.

During the time the couple was living in the apartment, Cobain was writing songs for the album In Utero and relaxed by painting, said his autobiographer Charles R. Cross. The apartment was until now been leased by Brandon Kleinman, who has lived there for four years. He wasn’t aware of the apartment’s background until after he signed the lease. The owner said that he made a mistake by advertising it as Kurt’s place, because he did not get any reliable offers.

Some time ago photos of the apartment were released right after Kurt and Courtney moved out. The graffiti was all over the walls, and the floor was covered in trash. Kleinman says the place is now in pristine condition, even though he did not succeed in restoring hardwood floors in the hallway. The damage resulted from a leaking bathtub in which, a legend says, Cobain wrote “Heart-Shaped Box.”
