Orville Peck launched his career here in Canada, but these days, he's living the glitzy life of a successful musician in Los Angeles. Proving his rock star bonafides, he's now living in a home that used to belong to John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This tidbit came out in the home tour he gave for Architectural Digest. While showing viewers around the rustic home, with its many cowboy-themed decorations and retro appliances that he compared to The Flintstones, he showed off a staircase column featuring some small triangular carvings.

"I absolutely love this staircase, and especially this column," he said. "John Frusciante from Red Hot Chili Peppers was one of the owners of the house. As I've seen a lot of his art, I think he carved these, which is really cool." Peck has carved his own "OP" into the column. Appropriately enough, the staircase leads up to his music studio, where he has an impressive collection of guitars (in addition to a shrine of his own masks).

Frusciante, in addition to being a famed rock guitarist (and occasional electronic musician), has dabbled in visual art. He painted a lot in the '90s, including doing the cover of his own 1997 solo album Smile from the Streets You Hold.

Watch Peck's architectural tour below. The bit about Frusciante's carvings starts at the 7:16 mark of the 14-minute video. Also keep an eye out for Queenie the dog.
