While theZillow.com listing for the house at 1323 South Lafayette
is suitably informative (from the basic descriptors -- two bedrooms, three bathrooms, 2,430 square feet, built in 1920, fireplace -- to the intangibles, "amazing location for this contemporary remodel," it says, "only three houses from Wash Park..."), it leaves out one rather enticing detail: namely, that its current owner is none other than one Mr.
, better known to local music fans as the namesake forBig Head Todd and the Monsters
. La Cabeza Grande, who's apparently hanging his hat in Northfield, Illinois, these days, is parting ways with the primo pad because he's "tired of renting in Chicago," evidently.
You'll be relieved to know, however, that Todd hasn't severed all ties with the Centennial State. He's keeping his place in Steamboat, he notes on Facebook, and besides, "These days I'm travelling so much Colorado -- you don't even know I'm gone! But I sure miss you though!" Indeed, we actually weren't aware that he had picked up stakes.
Regardless, no matter where Todd lives these days, you can rest assured that he'll always be Denver's favorite son and an indelible part of the Mile High City's music scene. Have a spare $600K burning a hole in your pocket? If so, you, too, can live like a rock star. Page down to have a look at the digs.
