You know all those “Concert Riders” you read about. Where various fucked up performers like Maria Carrey want special mirrors that make her look thin, Or Brittney wants a constant supply of Spam corn dogs, or Bill Cosby wants everything in the fucking Universe, ‘cos he’s an absolute arsehole (ask anyone who ever worked on the Jello TV campaign!) Well there’s a beauty on thesmokinggun for Iggy Pop and The Stooges. Eighteen pages of mirth and chuckles. Written by roadie Joe Grain it covers everything from sound equipment to demanding a backstage Bob Hope impersonator and a copy of USA Today with stories about morbidly obese people in it. A classic. If you do nothing else, check out page 18 for Joe’s idea for a new Reality TV show… “Dead Dog Island.” Considering “Saw III” is top of the box office charts right now, I can just see it on Fox. It’s right up the “Wizened of Oz’s” street.
Wonder what he'll look like when he grows up?
