Riders Rule

12 11 2008

Possibly my favorite section of The Smoking Gun is the artist tour rider section.  I try not to look at the riders for artists that I actually like, though, because the inevitable ridiculous things that I would read would make me dislike them instantly.  When I read about M.I.A.’s rider on Stereogum, however, I had to look for myself.  I don’t know what’s better, the cave-aged Gruyere or the gold balls.  Probably the gold balls.


Additionally, I have to post Daughtry’s rider.  The former American Idol contestant has come a long way, but you can tell he has stayed grounded.  He does NOT need his towels to be new. Just freshly laundered, thankyouverymuch.
