Shangri-La: Rock Music Landmark Lists at $4.1M
"The Shangri-La recording studio was designed by Rob Fraboni in the early 1970s to the specifications of Bob Dylan and The Band. The Band drummer Levon Helm described Shangri-La as a “clubhouse and studio where we and our friends could record albums and cross-pollinate one another’s music.”
"The studio is currently owned by Beej Chaney, singer and guitar player for the 1980s new-wave band, “The Suburbs.” Chaney renovated and updated the studio."
This Malibu music landmark is currently on the market for the first time in 30 years for $4.1 million. Shen Schulz of Sotheby’s International Realty, Malibu, has the listing.
