Fine Print in Musician's Contracts

Here is a hilarious article about those little riders that big music stars put in their contracts. I think my favorite is "Axl Rose—Fresh Wonder Bread (white), Dom Perignon". This one is also intriguing: "Busta Rhymes—24 piece Fried Chicken, Rough Rider condoms, Guinness". I'll spare you the off-putting photo of that one, but by all means follow the link.

Now, if I were doing big concert tours, what would I require in my dressing room before? A bottle of 1985 Vieux Telegraph Chateauneuf-du-Pape, beef tongue tacos and a green salad with ranch dressing. For afterwards, Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Oh, and a framed photo of Dmitri Shostakovich for inspiration. This last inspired by Britney Spears: "Fish and chips, McDonald's cheeseburgers without the buns, 100 prunes and figs, a framed photo of Princess Diana".


Or this:

Dmitri is way more inspiring, doncha think? Plus, cool hairdo.
