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.
1173 Beacon Avenue
“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.”
