Rock Stars at Home
Inside the homes of rock's biggest names
With images from private abodes, boudoirs, pleasure palaces, gardens, and jet planes of some of the world’s most famous musicians, Rock Stars at Home offers the reader a through-the-keyhole experience of some of the most ostentatious, bizarre, and over-the-top homes in rock and roll history – and doles out a plethora of fascinating insights about the lives of their celebrity inhabitants along the way.
From Elvis’s renowned Graceland to Neil Young’s secluded Broken Arrow Ranch; from Michael Jackson’s Neverland pleasure palace to Jimi Hendrix’s love nest in London’s Mayfair; and from Bob Dylan’s Hi Lo Ha at Woodstock to Ozzy Osbourne’s mansion in Beverley Hills, where reality TV was born, the book takes the reader on a tour of the iconic houses where the stars lived and (occasionally) died.
The book includes insider accounts, eye-opening stories of wild behaviour (and even wilder interior decor), and is lavishly illustrated throughout. Rock Stars at Home is, surely, the ultimate guide to rock ‘n’ roll living.
Let’s be honest, we all like to have a nose when it comes to the lifestyles of the rich and famous, but getting a glimpse of that world for those stars who lived before the age of social media is even more intriguing. Rock Stars At Home does just that, with intimate photographs of some of the world’s greatest ever musicians.
A stunning layout that makes this the ideal book for music and photography lovers alike.
A tour of some of the most iconic, extravagant, and enviable homes of rock stars.
It’s not just a photo book. Chapters are written by six collaborating authors and journalists who specialize in rock history and had access to insider accounts that give the visuals context.
Be they homey domiciles or, more typically, extravagant pleasure domes, the dozens of rock star homes documented here in 200 photos shed light on their owners’ personalities. Readers can ogle the over-the-top dwellings of Elton John and Michael Jackson, and also sneak a peek at the places that Debbie Harry, and members of the Clash and the Sex Pistols, lived pre-stardom.
