Strokes man buys country house
Albert Hammond Jr explains why he brought a very big house in the country
The guitarist recently showed the New York Post around his new 10-acre 19th Century-style farmhouse in the Catskills, 90 miles north west of his native Manhattan.
Hammond Jr said that a recent car purchase had inspired his new acquisition.
"It all started because I bought a Range Rover," he explained. "I never thought I'd buy a place in the country, and everybody I know said I was crazy. But this is exactly what I need to slow things down; to feed my creativity and my soul."
