I know that Michelle Branch, a famous singer, is from Sedona
This is an excerpt from the following website;
I am sure as you are visiting Sedona you will hear of all the celebrities that lived or still live in Sedona. I know we have heard many over the years. Lucille Ball's old house, Nick Cage, Johnny Depp, Madonna, the list goes on. On one trip we had a women that was working in the Robert Shields Studio at the Y (which is now out of business) tell us that Nick Cage came in and was ordering his furniture for his home that was in escrow.
We later found out that he actually does love Sedona and often came to Sedona to vacation when he was married to Lisa Marie Presley. He wanted to have a home in Sedona and was even in escrow for a home in an exclusive area near the airport but we were told that at the last minute he dropped out of escrow. He wanted to own the airspace above his home and that can't be sold. I don't think he would have lived in Sedona full time anyway as Nick Cage is one of the Celebs that likes to collect homes as a hobby.
On the same trip we were told that the monster house by the chapel was Nick Cage's, Johhny Depp and then finally we were told it was the Dr. who invented the laser for Lasik eye surgery and he is from Romania. We've been told "Madonna lives over there", or "the green house you see on the side of the hill by Snoopy rock was Lucille Ball's house".
With so many conflicting stories, who knows what the truth is. But chances are if it is coming out of timeshare person's mouth, then there is a good chance it is not true.
A few old time celebs lived in Sedona full-time in recent past. Actor Donald Oâ€™Connor and actress Sean Young lived in Sedona until Oâ€™Connor died in 2003. He was 78 when he passed and is buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood. Ms. Young, who appeared in â€œBlade Runnerâ€ and â€œNo Way Out,â€ moved back to LA Canifornia a few years ago.
There was also a dancer named Ann Miller that has a second home in Sedona but lived in Beverly Hills until her death in 2004. Now it is true that many celebs pass through the town. I have seen pictures on the wall of restaurants and hotels. Nick Cage, Johnny Depp,Bob Dylan, Mike Tyson,Oprah, Muhammad Ali, and Regis Philbin,Lisa Marie Presley, Nick Nolte and Martha Stewart and more.... more
