Cobain guitar sculpture unveiled

Kurt Cobain fans have attended the unveiling of a sculpted guitar memorial in a park in the Nirvana frontman's hometown.

The dedication in the city of Aberdeen, in the US state of Washington, on Tuesday marked the 17th anniversary of the singer's suicide.

A diverse group of fans and local residents, many born after the star's 1994 death, attended the ceremony.

The sculpture was placed in a park near the Young Street bridge where Kurt spent time while growing up.

The bridge attracts fans because it's mentioned in his song Something In The Way.

Besides the concrete guitar, there's a steel ribbon dangling in the air with lyrics from the Nirvana song On A Plain that say: "One more special message to go and then I'm done and I can go home."
