Joe Cocker's ranch for sale

The home of the late rock 'n' roll legend Joe Cocker in Crawford, Colo., has been put up for sale by his wife, Pam, at $7 million including furnishings.

Set on 243 acres on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains, the 15,873-square-foot mansion was built to the couple's specifications in 1994.

A 33-foot-tall turret, a sweeping staircase and a custom inlaid marble floor medallion make a grand first impression in the foyer of the English Tudor-style manor house.

The large living room or drawing room with a fireplace and cathedral windows was built for entertaining. The formal dining room can seat 18, the library features custom cherry paneling and bookcases, and the billiard room contains a wet bar.

The main floor rooms open to a terrace overlooking the lawn, pond and gardens.

The 1,500-square-foot master suite has dual bathrooms, his and her closets, a coffee bar, a stone fireplace, a seating area and a balcony. The home has a total of eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The seven-stall barn is equipped with turnouts, a silo and a large outdoor arena. Two greenhouses and a vegetable garden complete the grounds of the Mad Dog Ranch.

The Grammy-winning Cocker, who died in December at 70, gained fame in the early days of rock 'n' roll interpreting the Beatles' hit "With a Little Help From My Friends" in his distinctive gravelly voice. His 1975 version of Billy Preston's "You Are So Beautiful" was another of his most enduring reinventions.

The British blues-rock-R&B vocalist performed scores of television show soundtracks and released about 30 albums.

Mandy Nadler at Coldwell Banker Devonshire is the listing agent.

Bassist buys home with a studio

McVie, 69, joined Fleetwood Mac in the late 1960s and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the band some three decades later. They continue to tour. Among their enduring hits are "Dreams," "Rhiannon" and "Don't Stop."

Chandler, who died in 1959 at 70, wrote such novels as "The Big Sleep," "Farewell, My Lovely" and "The Long Goodbye," which were made into movies. He lived in the Brentwood house a short time in 1942 while working on "The High Window."
