Gabriel's post about touring got me thinking about riders. What is a rider ? A rider is the name given to an artist or band's list of demands.. for example, what food or drink they want at the venue, what special requirements they may have etc...

So, what would your rider have on it ? What would you like to have at your disposal before you hit the stage ?

Sacrificial virgins! wink.gif Really I don't know, I think I don't need anything special. Just give me normal food so I won't be hungry, normal sleeping place so I can sleep, and a roof over my head so I won't be ill:)

Somebody had to say it ! laugh.gif

I guess I should also start with my additions to this thread..

Plenty of bottled water, tea/coffee making facilities, fruit juice, beer (for after the show)

Pasties or pies. I guess that's it laugh.gif

Oh, and a games console of some description ! cool.gif

I dont gig now. Back in the day, we were'nt so big that we could demand anythin.

But if I had the option, I would ask for an electrolyte based drink & chocolates during the set and some beers & GOOD food afterwards.

If I gig'd now though, and if i try to do the shananigans that I used to do on stage, I'd f@##N need an oxygen tank.

I don't know what I would want. That is a hard question. I guess it's because I've never been in that situation. I guess it would be peace inside from shaking out of nervousness. biggrin.gif

My rider is very simple:
