The fact that Iggy Pop managed to see age 65 is proof positive of the regenerational capabilities of the human body.

I saw the Stooges in 2007. It was a great, great show that I will remember till my dying day.

That is all.

But hopefully not one of those sandwiches from Subway with beef and alfalfa sprouts sticking out, like a Florida retiree's bikini bottoms. Yuck.

it's the Keith Richards' effect. After so much drugs and alcohol the body develops mutant abilities of regeneration and endurance.

I also feel like this is a repeat, but honestly I don't think it matters. Iggy Pop is a marvel. Even his paperwork is entertaining.

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

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.

Its actually worth the read.

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.

He looks like a cross between The Doctor (in his earlier regenerations) and a professor at Hogwart's.

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 was actually quite disappointed they didn't do him up as a Ferengi.

I guess he wanted to tout the cooler Pop persona. I would have preferred the uninhibited id.

WhyteRaven74: I love for the drum kit "Please don't mention the "P" word"


I was surprised by all the equipment requirements. Amps, drums, guitars, cables, etc. Don't most bands tour with their own gear?

Yeah. 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.

120 dBA at FOH? Oi. I'll pass on that show, thank you.

That was David Lee Roth's explanation for the "no brown M&Ms" clause in Van Halen's concert rider.

It's proof that Iggy Pop is the Chuck Norris of rock and roll.

It's a list of gear, food, and other amenities that an act requests at a performance.

fusillade762: Don't most bands tour with their own gear?


Most do, but not all. It really depends on the people involved. For the Stooges drummer, eh any drum kit with the right size drums will do, he's not going to sit there and insist on some odd specifics or anything.

Ya, it was KISS. Considering the amount of pyro and flying around on guy wire and safety harness those guys did I sure would want to know somebody had read the contract thoroughly.
