A few people have written us and told us that Kurt was ambidextrous when it came to writing but I have not found any photos of Kurt writing or signing left-handed to prove it.  Here are some more right-handed autographs…

  1. Kurt was a righty who played left Kurt played this way because of his hero Greg Sage was also a righty who played left.

    kurt cobain was not exactly right handed I heard he learned later how to write right handed also but USUALLY wrote left handed. I specifically read him saying he was left handed

    I believe he was ambidextrous to an extent if I remember. One hand was better drawing and one was better writing, can’t remember which was which tho, but he did sign autographs with both hands.
