Enter the most ostentatious and over-the-top homes of rock and roll's greatest stars.
Through hundreds of colorful, jaw-dropping photographs and inside accounts of private abodes, pleasure palaces, gardens, jet planes, and island hideaways, Rock Stars at Home is a breathtaking inside look at the spectacular worlds rock gods and goddesses create for themselves. Whether you love music, interior design, fashion, photography, or just a good bit of gossip about the lifestyles of the rich and famous, this unforgettable look behind closed doors--where the songs were written and the magic happened--will take your breath away.
Among the more than 30 legends whose homes and antics are featured inside are:
- Frank Sinatra
- Ike and Tina Turner
- Bob Dylan
- Jimi Hendrix
- John Lennon and Yoko Ono
- George Harrison
- Freddy Mercury
- Debbie Harry and Chris Stein
- Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
- Mariah Carey
- And many more
Also included are entries on everything from the wild parties hosted by Keith Richards at Redlands to the Beatles's psychedelic interiors and the extravagant styles of the MTV Cribs generation. Whatever your style, you'll find something to love, to envy, and to decry in this homage to decadence. And you'll find yourself asking, where would you want to hang your hat after the world tour wraps?
