Steve Harris wants to make his home a hotel

A nine-acre Essex, England mansion owned by Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris is up for sale: at the bargain price of £3.95 million ($5.06 million), having dropped from an earlier price of £6.75 million ($8.64 million). Harris says that in his ideal world, the house would become a hotel for Iron Maiden fans.

"We recorded some albums there, too, in the studio — [1992's] Fear Of The Dark we recorded there and a few others — and there's lots of memorabilia there and everything like that. So...I don't know. That would be a nice plan. A boutique hotel... It means I could still stay there as well, which would be great." (NME)

Dave Grohl's kids are in new Foo video

A new video for the Foo Fighters song "The Sky Is a Neighborhood" stars frontman Dave Grohl’s two oldest daughters. In the Grohl-directed clip, notes Rolling Stone, the young girls start out "in a cozy cabin reading the song's lyrics in an old book while the group begins to play the stomping rocker on the roof. As 'The Sky Is a Neighborhood' builds, the girls become aware of the ruckus, jumping for joy at first but eventually growing annoyed as they try to get some sleep."

The song will appear on the band's forthcoming album Concrete and Gold, out Sept. 15.

QOTSA discography has opinions
