Rock Star Lairs

Not satisfied with a guitar pick or a concert t-shirt? See if your favorite rocker’s home is on the market:

   

1.  Jerry Garcia: This Marin County estate was the final dwelling place of The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia when he passed away in 2005. Situated on 11 acres, complete with mountain views, the current list price is $3.6 million, which isn’t bad considering it is a 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean home with five bedrooms, a 1,500-square-foot artist’s studio, a six-car garage, a solar-heated pool and an organic garden.

2.  The Beatles:  The British rockers reportedly rented this home from Zsa Zsa Gabor in 1965, following their North American tour. Considered their “vacation home”, this house was a frequent place for band members and groupies to drop acid, according to reports. The 4,330-square foot Beverly Hills home has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wine cellar, five fireplaces, a six-car garage, and a swimming pool. It sits on 2.5 acres of land. The listing agency reports that a sale is pending. I can’t wait to see who the buyer is!

  

3.  Amy Winehouse:  Prior to her death in July 2011, this home only changed possession once in forty years and it was when Winehouse purchased and remodeled it herself. The Camden House villa is currently listed for $4.3 million and features a retro black-and-white checkered kitchen, a gym, sound proofed walls and opens out onto private gardens. Of course, there is also the shrine at the front gate, which fans created as a tribute to her.

  

4.  Michael Jackson:  The King of Pop was renting this home for $100,000 per month at the time of his death in 2009. Owned by the CEO of Ed Hardy, this Holmby Hills estate features 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces, a home theater, a wine room, a spa with gym, an elevator and a pool. Total square footage measures at just over 17,000. It is currently listed for $23.9 million.
