 Nirvanas smashed bass and Bob Dylans yearbook up for auction

Grab your checkbooks, some rare music-related artifacts are up for auction. As NME reports, Christie’s in London is auctioning off Krist Novoselic’s smashed bass guitar from Nirvana’s iconic “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video and Bob Dylan’s 1958 high school yearbook.

Novoselic’s former axe looks to grab between £15,000 and £25,000, while Dylan’s ol’ facebook should collect around £6,000, which is more or less a steal given that there’s a note from the great bard included. Here’s what he wrote:

Dear Jerry, Well the year’s almost all over now huh. Remember the ‘sessions’ down at Collier. Keep practicing the guitar and maybe someday you’ll be great! A friend, Bob Zimmerman.

Think you’ve got the weight in your bank account? Do you need a new addition to your rock ‘n’ roll mausoleum? Well, then head over to London and attend the auction, which takes place on November 29th. Good luck, chap.
