Living like a Rock Star

May 25, 2015

One of the perks of becoming a huge rock star is the ability to afford some of the best real estate in the world. Most bands who make it big spend half their lives on the road. It is no wonder that when touring season is over they want a sweet pad to put their feet up and relax among the lavish decor until it’s time to start working on more music. We’ve found a few Rock Star homes that prove if you make it, life can be awesome. We’ve got some newly purchased homes, current homes and homes that could be yours for the right price.

Dave Navarro’s Hollywood loft went up for sale last year. The loft space is located on the corner of Hollywood and Vine. The price tag was just under a million dollars. The 1570 square foot space is considered modest, but for a bachelor pad surely it is enough. The loft is in the Broadway Hollywood building and has amazing views of the Hollywood sign and Capital Records, historic landmarks in Los Angeles. The loft was originally bought in 2007 on the heels of his break up with Carmen Electra. The space was decorated by interior decorator Heidi Toll. His bedroom has a custom vinyl platform bed with privacy drapes. It also has blackout curtains to accommodate the sleep all day rock star habits.
