Vince Neil Mourns Death of His Beloved Dog

Motley Crue vocalist Vince Neil is in mourning the sudden death of his six year old dog California Wolf Neil, a.k.a. “Cali.” Neil is blaming the sudden death of his pooch on his neighbors and their “two evil neighbor dogs.”  Neil posted this statement on Instagram:

“With a heavy heart we share the news that our beloved California Wolf Neil has gone to heaven. Her passing was tragic. She was brutally murdered on our front door by two evil neighbor dogs, which is caught on our security cameras. Our neighbors are trying to cover it up and say that she ran two football fields to their pasture and their long horn steers killed her!! Please pray for her justice because her killers are still running free!! Cali touched every person she came in contact with and was loved by all. We wish we could have her back. But we know it’s the circle of life and she will come back to us in her next life. Thank you all for your support and love during these difficult times. We will be posting and sharing more photos of her as we have almost 6 years of beautiful memories with her. She had the ‘it factor’ and was perfect in every way. She had a pure soul, loved with her whole heart and could never hurt a soul. We always prayed for her protection and that she would never feel any pain. She had a beautiful life and a horrific sudden end. But she’s in heaven now and she got her wings ????????‍♀️ We will be patiently waiting to see her again ???? #justiceforcali#rip 7-8-2014 – 6-18-2020″

Kurt Cobain’s Acoustic ‘MTV Unplugged’ Guitar Sells For Record $6M

A guitar played by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain on a famous 1993 unplugged album has been sold at auction for $6 million, setting a new record. The guitar was famous for having been played on Nirvana’s 1993 “MTV Unplugged” performance. The subsequent live album is one of the grunge band’s only acoustic recordings. The guitar was played on November 18, 1993, less than five months before Cobain committed suicide at the age of 27.

The guitar, a 1959 Martin D-18E, was sold to Australian Peter Freedman, owner of Rode Microphones. Other items sold at the auction included a guitar owned by Prince, a belt worn by Elvis Presley and a gown worn by Madonna.  The previous record for the most expensive guitar was set in 2019, when Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmor’s instrument was sold for around $4 million.
