Kurt Cobain was in constant pain and made sure the world knew about it. The victim of a difficult to diagnose stomach disorder, Cobain often mentioned his struggles in his songwriting (especially songs like "Pennyroyal Tea") and the ailment led Cobain to search for ways to numb the pain, leading to his struggles with drugs and ultimately his demise

Showcasing the parallel of a rising star and a young man grappling with a mysterious ailment, offered here is an official ER check-in form from St Peter Hospital in Olympia, WA. Dated April 15, 1991, the document outlines Cobain's concern as "Epigastric Pain" and lists "Musician" as profession and "David Geffen" as his employer. A photocopy of the doctor's notes, dated 4/17/91, is included with the document and shows that despite performing a battery of tests, the doctors could not conclusively determine the cause of Cobain's issue and that he was discharged accordingly. Just a few weeks later, Cobain and his bandmates would travel to see producer Butch Vig and embark on the recording of "Nevermind."

The ER registration form is 8.5" x 11" and has been personally signed by Kurt Cobain in black ink, showcasing a rare full name signature. The document has been custom framed alongside a photo by Marty Temme, taken on October 4th, 1991, at The Palace in Hollywood, CA. An impressive piece of Cobain history, given insight to the struggles that he endured during his turbulent yet brilliant career as a rock superstar.

Authentication: James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
