"he would like to spend some more time with the boys in the yard, but he has to perform his ritual...

he mumbles c u later and then walks towards his room. he takes a shower and then stands in the middle of his white room naked- just him and 150 black towels which later will be used to dry his body.

he takes his time as the chants of the wild fans get louder..."

ps Axl if u are reading this its all love.please play TWAT in athens peace

Folks, I can make perfect sense of the outlandish requests that rockstars like Axl make.  It's all very simple.  There's approximately 1, 000, 000, 000, 002 things that can go wrong at a show, ruining it for all the fans.  A major piece of equipment could fail, a plug could be plugged in the wrong way, a piece of euipment could get packed wrong, destroying it, an instrument could be plugged into the wrong board, etc., etc., etc.  The shows are extremely carefully pre-planned and must be followed to the letter.  The reason those lavish things are on the contract is to prove that the venue and the show organizer READ THE DAMN CONTRACT.  If they did not read the contract, then all those things that could go wrong at the show probably will.  If they don't read the contract, the performer could get into a LOT of trouble....not only with the fans if the show goes wrong, but financially if there's a disaster, and even physically if there's a riot or he/she gets electrocuted because some jerk didn't read the fine print.   These lavish things in the contract are for YOUR benefit, the fans.  There's just far too much on the line for a show to have something major go wrong, so these things are all safeguards against that sort of thing.  It is simply far too dangerous to NOT have these things in a contract.  They insure the safety of the performer and the entertainment of the fans.

He employs a crew of around 100 other people. He's helping 100 other less fortunate people just by doing his job. How many less fortunate people did you help today just by existing? Not 100, I'm guessing. 100 people and their families have food and clothes, money for bills and mortgages and loan repayments, just because GNR are touring. That goes a little further than your $5 donation to the salvation army, 'kay? 'Kay.

1)Why should the towels be black?


I'd guess it's so that you can tell that they're new, and not the promoter's hand-me-downs. Same for the amount, 150, no-one has 150 towels laying around and certainly not 150 black ones. You'd be forced to go and buy them. And so, Axl gets a clean, unused towel. And 149 spares. Because it's hot under those lights, dammit! Also, put them all in a pile and you've got a makeshift matress! It's way cheaper for the promoter to buy 150 black towels than to buy a king-sized bed. I'd rather ask for the bed though, because you can tell it's new and unused because it's wrapped in plastic. Actually, I'd ask for 150 black california king-size beds and I'd bring my own towel.

In Nijmegen Axl was still going strong on the botlles of Evian, maybe his rider hasn't changed that much since the 90's... I'd like to see this years btw...

I found some backstage requirements online. Not sure when these are from though.





That looks a lot like my grocery list.

For that matter, why doesn't he sell his Ferrari, his crib and all the rights to his music and give it all to the poor?? Why stop at roses and towels?? ? confused

I am by no means an Axl apologist, but he's earned his money.? He'll spend it as he sees fit.? The taxes he's paid alone probably contribute to more charitable causes than any of us ever will...

His property taxes alone are more than most people make in a year.

Yeah, that looks like it's from the UYI tour days, because James Hetfield reads off a bunch of those in one of Metallica's home videos from the Metallica/GN'R tour.

Having said that, I don't want to turn this into anti-Metallica thread, I just thought I'd point out when I think these Axl backstage requirements might be from.
this is where it is from, I have the Metallica video where all the bashing takes place in regards to this

Artists' diva behavior and requests are basically based on the "cuz I can" rule. There's one thing that always struck me as weird. When you start out in a band, you're lucky if you get a case of beer and a sandwich at the club you're playing, yet you put on a show and you do it and it's all great and fun. Then they sell a couple of million records and all of a sudden they need all this stupid shit and make ridiculous demands. I mean, I understand if you want a decent meal and some drinks and stuff, but 150 black towels?

But I'm not talking about just Axl, I'm talking about a lot of artists. The whole "the couch needs to be white leather or else I'll be unhappy" thing always seemed idiotic to me.

Rockstars or not, they're all spoiled babies.
