Escape Monday: Backstage Riders From Famous Bands In Pics

Photo © Tim Gander. All rights reserved. TEL: 07703 124412.You guys ever heard the famous story of Van Halen and the clause in his concert contract that said if the band found a single brown M&M in the bowl backstage they could cancel an appearance on the spot?

It’s gone down in rock legend as one of the most self-indulgent, childish clauses in a backstage rider contract ever. What a bunch of egotistical douchebags right?
