LOS ANGELES — In a city teeming with celebrity homes that Dave Grohl’s architectural masterpiece in LA and personal tastes, Dave Grohl’s mansion stands out. The former drummer for Nirvana, Foo Fighters and countless other bands has transformed this palatial property into a hub of creativity that caters to his music-making needs. From a state-of-the-art recording studio to an expansive living room, every space reflects the rock star’s personal touch.
The mansion’s history is rich, too. It has a long list of owners and numerous renovations, but Grohl has ensured that the house’s essence has remained intact. As Grohl’s star continues to rise, he’s made sure that his home remains in sync with his musical evolution.

For Grohl, the home exemplifies the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll and the idea that making music is about the feeling it invokes. In addition to his dedication to his craft, Grohl is also a philanthropist who strives to make a positive impact on the world. In this spirit, he recently joined forces with the non-profit organization Hope The Mission to provide food for the homeless.
During the premiere of his documentary Sound City at ArcLight Cinemas on Thursday night, Grohl brought together a slew of rock ‘n’ roll luminaries to celebrate the legacy of Van Nuys-based record studio Sound City. They performed onstage at the venue as the Sound City Players, reviving classics and performing songs from Grohl’s new album, Real to Reel. As the show drew to a close, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks took to the stage and delivered a heart-wrenching rendition of “Landslide.” Check out some of the photos from this remarkable event.
