BOSTON, MASS.- A Nirvana signed photograph sold for $14,323 according to Boston-based RR Auction.

The oversized color glossy photo of Nirvana in their classic grunge fashion, signed in blue felt tip by iconic frontman Kurt Cobain, "Kurt"; bassist Krist Novoselic, "Krist"; and drummer Dave Grohl, "If there's one thing that would put me on the brink of total insanity, it would definitely be signing autographs all [expletive] day long. David."

Originating from the John Brennan In-person autograph collection. Brennan first met Nirvana in January 1992, in the lobby of NBC when they were at the Thursday music rehearsal for a “Saturday Night Live” performance. After that, he followed them everywhere, before they were famous. “I just knew,” said Brennan in a statement on the auction house’s website. He met them nearly a dozen times during the band's career. “In just under two years, it was all over.” He followed them all of 1992 and 1993. Drummer Dave Grohl is seen wearing a “Secret Sounds” t-shirt on the album cover for “Muddy Banks of Wishkah,” which Brennan gave him. “Dave was always difficult to deal with; Kurt was the easy one,” added Brennan.

“It’s an amazing photo of the legendary 90s group, signed by all three members made even more desirable by Grohl's irreverent and ironic commentary on signing autographs,” said Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction.
