My Backstage Rider is on The Smoking Gun

Entertainment

According to The Smoking Gun: ‘The backstage rider, presented to promoters by every touring act, details specifications on stage design, sound systems, lighting, as well as an artist's wish list--from travel and billing to dressing room accommodations and meals. Made famous by Van Halen’s contractual demand that brown M&M's be plucked from the group’s candy bowl…often reflects the delightful or difficult nature of the individual artists.' * Missing: Meat Beat Manifesto * Oysterhead * String Cheese Incident
