The very irreverent SmokingGun website specialises in finding the strangest legal stories on the internet. One of the items that they love to talk about are the unusual requests that musicians and other performers make of the concert/venue owners and promoters.

Mostly the requests are about how many dressing rooms, and what kinds of booze should be supplied. These ‘Riders’ are usually pretty dry and boring pieces of literature. Not so with Iggy Pop and his band ‘The Stooges’. Every page of the rider is a classic, one of my favorite quotes..

1 x case of big bottles of premium beer

You Decide, But remember, I might ask you to taste a bottle, so buy something nice!! Here’s a clue it probably doesn’t start with a ‘B’ and end with ‘udweiser’.

The whole rider can be found here
