Go on a Magical Mystery Tour into the personal lives of rockers
You can tell a lot about people from the way they live, and rock stars are no exception. From Graceland to Neverland, private planes to island hideaways, rock stars always live large and the upcoming release, Rock Stars at Home takes readers on a private tour inside the houses, pools, planes, music rooms, playgrounds, and more of the biggest names in rock and pop and some of the most extravagant homes ever seen.
A collaborative effort from six of music’s greatest journalists – Chris Charlesworth, Eddi Fiegel, Bryan Reesman, Colin Salter, Simon Spence and Daryl Easlea – this 176-page hardcover takes fans on a private tour of thirty rock legends’ homes from Elvis Presley and the Beatles to Prince and Ozzy Osbourne.
With more than 200 stunning, and sometimes shocking, images, Rock Stars at Home is packed with great photos – many before never published – and eye-popping stories of wild behavior and even wilder interior décor and includes insider accounts from those in the know. Fans will gain insight into the home life of each star, with stories from Elvis’ extraordinary down-home diet, to the wild parties hosted by Keith Richards at Redlands, the scene of the famous 1967 drug busts that led to the arrests of Richards, Mick Jagger, and art dealer Robert Fraser. Additional features focus on specific topics from the Beatles’ psychedelic interiors to the modern, extravagant lifestyles of the MTV Cribs generation.
“Everyone says they want to party like a rock star,” says Alex Merrill, Publisher and Director of Sales for Apollo Publishers. “And Rock Stars at Home will allow fans of rock and photography alike to glean an insider’s look into what that really means. Rock Stars at Home is an entertaining, artistic and eye-opening look at how the ‘other-half’ really lives.”
With a stunning layout that makes this the ideal book for music and photography lovers alike, Rock Stars at Home features the work of six collaborating authors/journalists who have been chronicling rock ‘n’ roll history for more than fifty years and have written the definitive biographies of The Who, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson and many others. The book takes readers on a grand tour of thirty homes including Elvis Presley, the Beatles, David Bowie, the Jacksons, Prince, Ozzy Osbourne and more.
