Notes on the rider that accompanied Van Halen’s most recent reunion tour: David Lee Roth’s dressing room had to be full of sugar-free Red Bull, but rug-free (so he could practice martial arts pre-show); also, his boudoir “SHOULD BE AS FAR AWAY FROM” those belonging to the other three Van Halens, for unspecified (but endlessly speculatable!) reasons. Also, Eddie needed really cheap wine in his on-stage cooler, at least in the pre-“extensive medical testing” days. [The Smoking Gun via Fark]
