A listing on Craigslist.org for the sale of Kurt Cobain’s personal items has been revealed as a hoax.

Over the weekend, a posting surfaced from an unnamed man, who claimed to be a former Cobain housemate, offering up a set of skis and a telephone the tragic rock star once owned.

However, Sub Pop Records receptionist Derek Erdman has now come forward explaining he came up with the idea while he was “supposed to be working on something else.”

He tells Revolt, “I created a diversion. Then I ignored it and went back to work. A few hours later I did an interview with CBC radio about it. Later that night I met a TV news crew… for an interview, but they called my bluff and asked for ID. I told them that I was a one time bass player for ’90s band Gruntruck. They didn’t buy it, and they were visibly not happy about me wasting their time…

“I don’t have that stuff… If I had a Swatch phone, there’s no way that I’d sell it.”

He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
