Last weekend, Julien's auction confirmed the news that a rare 1992 sketch of late rock star Kurt Cobain was sold for the mount of $281,250 in the Music Icon's auction. "I don't know how to play and I don't give a hoot!", was the legend that accompanied the messy black pen caricature of Nirvana's singer self-portrait signed by "Kurdt Kobain Rock Star".

The draw apparently has two-decade antiquity and was sketched in Singapore during Nirvana's "Nevermind" promotional tour of 1992. 

Julien's auction has previously had impressive sales of the singer -dead at just 27 years old- belongings such as a 1959 Martin D-18E guitar that the rock star used during his performance at MTV Unplugged sold for $6.010.000 and declared as the most expensive guitar sold at auction until then.

Other valuable items were sold at Julien's auction: a Cloud 1994 guitar commissioned by Prince found a buyer for $281,250 and a Bob Mackie design used by Cher in 2002 "The Farewell Tour" was sold for $115,200, informed People.
