This is really cool! Huge thanks to David for sending into us! Apparently the famous landmark home (and a must-visit for all No Doubters) on Beacon Ave. in Anaheim, California (Beacon Street and namesake for BSO!) is featured in the book Elvis Presley Passed Here: Even More Locations of America’s Pop Culture Landmarks by Chris Epting. The band house has it’s own mention in the book which is so awesome that it’s recognized even outside the No Doubt fan community. For any fan that has been there, it’s pretty surreal seeing the old Stefani house where so many songs were put together, wrote and performed. The artwork for The Beacon Street Collection was taken here and the “Trapped In A Box” and “Just A Girl” videos were filmed here as well. Here is the exclusive excerpt from the book and you can also check it out on Amazon.com for only $16.95.

No Doubt

1173 Beacon Avenue
Anaheim, California

“The members of the Southern California band No Doubt moved into this house, the former home of Eric and Gwen Stefani’s grandparents. They built a recording studio in the garage which is where they cut their initial demos, no to mention a few of the songs that would wind up on their breakout 1996 album Tragic Kingdom. The album featured the songs “Don’t Speak,” “Just a Girl,” and “Sunday Morning.”

  1. I remember back in the day, when they were filming the video with them on the roof. Also being there watching them film Sunday Morning. We had got passes to be on the property at the Grandmas house. Good times!!!

  2. I would love to visit that house one day. But that probably won’t happen since I don’t fly. But its nice to see pictures! 😀
