A man who once shared a home with tragic Nirvana star Kurt Cobain is selling off the singer/songwriter's belongings on Craigslist.com.

The unnamed former pal has offered up a set of skis and a telephone Cobain once reportedly owned for less than $100 (£62.50) each, and he is keen to sell more of the rocker's stuff from their time as housemates in Washington before he was famous.

The ex-housemate writes, "I used to live with Kurt Cobain back in the 90s and I have been holding on to a bunch of his stuff that he left in a box when he moved out. He owed us rent and said he would get the box when he came back and gave us money but he never came back, then when he was famous he never really talked to any of us again...

"i also have a lot more stuff of kurts, like magazine and clothes that i will be selling off soon."

The online sale comes just weeks before the 20th anniversary of Cobain's death in April, 1994.
