Shangri-La: Rock Music Landmark Lists at $4.1M


Forget about those houses that claim "George Washington slept here." We're way more excited about this Malibu landmark that just came on the market at $4.1 million. It's where Bob Dylan and The Band, Eric Clapton, Robbie Robertson, the Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr, and Joe Cocker made music -- and actually where Clapton slept for three months during the recording of his "No Reason to Cry" album.

The Shangri-La recording studio was designed by Rob Fraboni in the early 1970s to the specifications of Bob Dylan and The Band. The Band drummer Levon Helm described Shangri-La as a "clubhouse and studio where we and our friends could record albums and cross-pollinate one another's music." Amen.
