Suicide de Kurt Cobain: mise aux enchères de bancs de parc devenus des monuments commémoratifs

An undated file photo shows "Nirvana" lead singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain performing on stage. Living fast and dying young has long been part of rock 'n' roll lore.  And in this case, statistics affirm the image, according to a study released Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007. Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University, whose report appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, studied a sample of North American and British rock and pop stars and concluded they are more than twice as likely as the rest of the population to die an early death. The team analyzed the stars of rock, punk, rap, R&B, electronic and new age genres in the "All Time Top 1,000" albums, published in 2000. They then analyzed the artists - ranging from the late Elvis Presley to the still lively rapper Eminem tabulating how many had died and at what age. Cobain committed suicide at his home in Seattle on April 8, 1994. (AP Photo)

ABERDEEN, États-Unis - Deux bancs de parc devenus des monuments commémoratifs à la mémoire de Kurt Cobain après le suicide du chanteur grunge il y a 20 ans ont été mis en vente.

Les bancs se trouvaient dans un parc de Seattle près de la demeure de Cobain et étaient couverts de messages de fans écrits ou gravés sur les lamelles de bois.

La station KXRO rapporte que les lamelles des bancs du parc Viretta ont été remplacées par du nouveau bois en 2008, mais que les anciennes lamelles ont été sauvées du dépotoire.

Ces lamelles ont été fixées à de nouveaux bancs, qui sont en vente à la maison d'enchères Hamilton's Antique & Estate Auctions, à Tacoma.
