Rock Roots

Real LI runs down the rockingest of East End real estate owners, taking particular interest in new addition Rufus Wainwright. Wainwright recently purchased his own property, but told the Sag Harbor Express that his grandfather is buried in East Hampton and that all of his family is from the South Fork, making him a 'a native Hamptonite returning after two generations.' Welcome back. Other rock royalty who've settled on the South Fork include: Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Lou Reed, Simon Kirke, Jimmy Buffett, Suzanne Vega, Roger Waters and Jon Bon Jovi. [Real LI]
