The Mansion – Rick Rubins Haunted Hollywood studio

Posted on April 24, 2015 in Music, People — Share this via


I got quite obsessed recently with the music and stories that have come out of Rick Rubins The Mansion recording studio in Hollywood Hills. The mythology of this place is something else, apparently Harry Houdini lived there you know. Its also famously haunted and various resident musicians reporting the same spooky goings on. John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers even reckoned he masturbated in front of one spooky apparition, well whatever floats your boat. All this is even before you get onto the music made there. There a cool film below of JayZ recording 99 problems there, but probably the best footage of this wonderful place comes from LCD Soundsystems video diaries of them recording the epic album This is Happening.
