Remember MTV Cribs? Is that still on? Anyway, I remember watching when I was younger and getting a glimpse inside the homes of celebrities. The tour, usually given by the star themselves, showed their giant houses and almost always showed off some fancy pool out back. Sometimes the houses were super classy and sometimes they were really over the top or eccentric, but it was always interesting to see.
Rock Stars at Home gives readers a glimpse inside the homes of famous rock stars like Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Elvis, and others. I think rock stars always have the most eccentric homes!
The book details these stars’ homes like Freddie Mercury’s home Garden Lodge in Kensington, London. A Georgian brick home with a a quarter acre of garden, 12 foot garden wall, and was filled with Japanese furniture and half a dozen cats.
Keith Moon’s home, Tara House, in Surrey was a bit more eccentric with some rooms that had murals of superheroes, a “sunken conversation pit” inside the main room, a pool with a wave machine, and more.
As mentioned above there are details on a whole lot more homes like Sonny & Cher’s Italianate Renaissance Villa called Carolwood and Neil Young’s Broken Arrow Ranch.
As a self-professed lover of all things entertainment, this book really fascinates me! If you’re interested in behind the scenes type books, home design/decor, and/or a glimpse of the inside lives of music stars then definitely check this book out!
