Let’s take a brief break from the music for some music news.
The Mustang guitar that Kurt Cobain played in the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video was sold, for much more than expected at the Music Icons auction. The left-handed instrument with the Competition Lake Placid blue finish was expected to go for $600,000 plus, but ended up selling for $4.5 million. Kurt said in one of his final interviews with Guitar World, that “I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. I’ve only owned two of them.” Jim Irsay Indianapolis Colts CEO made the winning bid for the instrument. Cobain’s family plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the auction to Jim Irsay mental health awareness organization, Kicking the Stigma.

In other news,
The music industry continues to grapple with the challenges posed by streaming platforms, the Copyright Royalty Board has been asked to increase royalties for physical products. According to reports, this proposed 32% increase would raise the mechanical royalty rate from 9.1 cents to 12 cents per track for physical products. In a statement, Sony Music Publishing chairman Jon Platt said that the royalty rate-setting process is “currently the most critical issue facing songwriters and music publishers in the United States.” He went on to say that an increase in royalties would provide much-needed relief for those who are struggling to make a living in the music industry.
