Lust for laughs.

The title is a pun on Iggy's cruise ship ditty "Lust for Life" which I have blogged about before. Anyway, the subject here is his hilarious concert rider, detailing what you have to provide in order for him to play at your venue. Including, and I'm not kidding on this one, the reality TV proposal belonging to the roadie who wrote the thing.

For example, in describing how Iggy's dressing room should be made to "look less like a typical rock & roll dressing room," the rider suggests that promoters "just let someone loose with a little bit of artistic flair...Er, do you know any homosexuals?" Explaining the need for two heavy duty fans, Grain notes, "So that I can wear a scarf and pretend to be in a Bon Jovi video." Also, don't miss the backstage requirements of a Bob Hope impersonator and "a copy of USA Today that's got a story about morbidly obese people in it. Most amusing!"
