Rick Rubin’s Haunted Mansion

Rick Rubin uses “The Mansion” as a recording studio for the famous bands he works with. It’s rumored to be haunted ever since a young man murdered his lover on the premises in 1918. That home has since burned to the ground, but the rebuilt property hosts light orbs, doors that open themselves, and other strange occurrences according to artists like John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I’m not sure that he can be trusted. John Frusciante probably sees more people who aren’t there that the American Werewolf in London.

Sly Stone’s Van

As reported last month, funk legend Sly Stone is currently living in his van. The soul music superstar has found himself homeless after losing his massive home due to substance abuse, excessive lifestyle choices, and financial mismanagement. It’s not even a very funky van. Pretty much just a camper. I’d assume that it has some kind of shag carpeting at the very least. Can’t Xzibit throw this legend a bone?
