Thanks to our friends again at OC Weekly for the shout out, we were mentioned again for our article about the house on Beacon Ave. going up for sale. They liked our idea about turning the house into a No Doubt museum. The newspaper also spoke to Tom about the house going on the market and also pointed out that both the “Trapped In A Box” and “Just A Girl” videos were filmed there. Most of “Tragic Kingdom” was written in the band house as well on Beacon Ave.
Thanks to Vickie from OC Weekly for sending in!
OC Weekly — 1173 W. Beacon Ave. in Anaheim is world-famous.
It was the family home of Gwen Stefani, but it’s also where No Doubt rehearsed, recorded some of The Beacon Street Collection in the garage and filmed two videos. And it’s on the market.
All you need is $325,000.
We just chatted with No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont, who confirms that not only were the “Trapped in a Box” and “Just a Girl” music videos filmed at the Anaheim home, but also “much of Tragic Kingdom” was written there.
From the official real-estate listing for the three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,213-square-foot home:
You have an opportunity to own a piece of Anaheim and Orange County history. The ‘Beacon Street’ house is famously known because a local band known as No Doubt recorded an album and two videos at this home. The home, which was originally a four-bedroom, is now a three-bedroom (a wall can be put up to make it a four-bedroom again), with two baths. It has a large yard in the front as well as a large yard in the back. Newer roof (2004) and some newer dual-pane windows. Newer laminate wood flooring in the living/eating room and the hallway. Good area, one of the best streets in the neighborhood. Walking distance to Disneyland. Close to schools, transportation, shopping and freeway access.
Hat tip to No Doubt fansite Beacon Street Online, which suggests fans should pool their cash to turn the place into a museum!
