Additional Description: "Much of the Hotel Chelsea's history has been colored by the musicians who have resided or visited there. Some of the most prominent names include the Grateful Dead, Nico, Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Jim Morrison, Iggy Pop, Virgil Thomson, Chick Corea, Jeff Beck, Dee Dee Ramone, Johnny Thunders, Mink DeVille, Marianne Faithfull, Cher, John Cale, Édith Piaf, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper, Bette Midler, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Canned Heat, Sid Vicious, and Rufus Wainwright. Madonna lived at the Chelsea in the early 1980s, returning in 1992 to shoot photographs for her book, Sex, in room 822. Leonard Cohen, who lived in room 424, and Janis Joplin, in room 411, had an affair there in 1968, and Cohen later wrote two songs about it, 'Chelsea Hotel' and 'Chelsea Hotel #2'." - Wikipedia
