On The Aberdeen Nirvana Tour With An Official Cobain Live Mr Potato Head 2″ Keychain – Photos

KURT Cobain is best thing to come out of Aberdeen, Washington, since milled wood. The city hopes the Nirvana singer will put the place on the tourist trail. Yesterday, the town celebrated the first Kurt Cobain Day on what would have been the star’s 47th birthday.

Aberdeen mayor Bill Simpson wants to harness “the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements”. He wants Aberdeen to be the new Graceland, Elvis’s home in Memphis, Tennessee, where tour prices start at $34. Over 600,000 pay up every year – and they exit via the gift shop, picking up items like Elvis Graceland mints, the Elvis American Classic Counted Cross Stitch Kit and this Elvis Live Mr Potato Head 2″ Keychain.
