Houdini Mansion, originally built in 1918 is a 10-bedroom mansion in the Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles. Named also The Mansion, the house is famous for many bands who recorded their best titles. Although many say that Harry Houdini lived at The Mansion, no one has ever lived in The Mansion under the name Houdini. Corey Taylor, singer of the bands Stone Sour and Slipknot, in his book ‘A funny thing happened on the way to heaven’ describes his paranormal experiences in The Mansion while recording the Slipknot album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) in 2003.
It is rumored that the Houdini Mansion has been haunted since 1918, when the son of a furniture store owner pushed his lover from the balcony.
The mansion is actually built on the grounds of the old mansion that burned down in the late 1950s and wasn’t rebuilt until years later to be used as a recording arts studio. Also, during the recording of the Red Hot Chili Peppers: Blood Sugar Sex Magik, more unusual things occurred. The BSSM album art also features a photograph of a strange orb captured during a group photograph, which the band suggests might have been a spirit at the Houdini mansion.
