Iggy (And The Three Stooges?)

If you don't laugh your ass off while reading Iggy And The Stooges' backstage rider, you must be D.E.D dead.

Here's Iggy's dressing room requirement.

Then this page here is the band's absolutely demented preface to the instructions for the lighting designer.

And how about their detailed instructions for sound mixing? The band wants the guitars to sound like "jackboots upon wet cobblestones".

Iggy may be the Father of Punk, he is most certainly the Father of the Stage Dive, and now, he's helping create backstage comedy.

This is a gem! Can't wait to be famous and write up my own.

Hey, MT, it would be a lot funnier if you wrote them before you get famous :))
