theorellior: The fact that Iggy Pop managed to see age 65 is proof positive of the regenerational capabilities of the human body.
The Muthaship: Is this a new one?

The Onion is prophetic: But hopefully not one of those sandwiches from Subway with beef and alfalfa sprouts sticking out, like a Florida retiree's bikini bottoms. Yuck.What's it called when you laugh and throw up in your mouth at the same time?

Russ1642: What's a concert rider?
K.B.O. Winston: Russ1642: What's a concert rider?Legit question? It's something added to the contract venues must sign to get a band to appear. When one band (forget which) had a lot of lighting/electrical demands that truly needed to be met or their equipment could be dangerous to handle, they wrote in a rider about green M&Ms in the dressing room.This way, when they walked into the dressing room, they knew whether or not someone had actually read the entire contract, including the list of required electricity requirements for their show./it also resulted in M&Ms
moothemagiccow: Im not going to read the whole thingCan someone gimme the greatest hits?
cgraves67: Russ1642: What's a concert rider?It's the performers' contract with the venue stating their requirements to perform. It usually contains information regarding stage space, electrical specifications, and other technical details. For high level performers, you will see ridiculous demands regarding catering and other weird things.

the801: guy wants a newspaper. i've read way, way worse on smoking gun. if you want a bowl full of m&m's, do you care what color they aare? some people do.mr. pop made some great music (rude n nude if you're not already indoctrniated) and he was michelle trachtenberg's father on her first show. and ron howard has skills, but he is ugly, and no one needs a news writeup to know that.

I think it was David Lee Roth who started that. He knew if he walked into the dressing room and there were brown M&Ms, the whole concert setup could be suspect. Especially when dealing with props and pyro that could potentially kill or maim him if rigged incorrectly.
RussianPooper: I read somewhere that the reason the ridiculous things get included has less to do with the performers being prima donnas (in general) and more with making sure the venue pays attention to the important requirements regarding equipment and such.
