A legendary British heavy metal band walks into a bar. The bartender says, "What can I get you?" The band, we'll call them Iron Maiden for the purpose of this story, says 27 Slippery Nipples, 78 pints of Guinness, 57 Hansas and many, many other drinks. The bartender says "You got it!" At the end of the night, the band goes home after settling its $3,250 USD tab. Then at some point in the near future someone posts the receipt on Reddit. It flies around the Internet until it lands here. The end!
So yeah, as this receipt makes clear, Iron Maiden loves Slippery Nipples and many other alcoholic beverages. Learning this got us thinking about other things rock stars indulge in, which led to us to The Smoking Gun's impressive vault of tour riders, which led us to this list of rock start indulgences below.
+ Meat Loaf demands fancy food for dinner and two boxes of Cracker Jacks for dessert.
+ Def Leppard needs one box of Health Valley granola bars and for the love of God "please don't be confused by Nature Valley."
+ Rage Against the Machine simply will not go on stage unless there are new pairs of underwear provided for each band member.
+ Screw food and booze, AC/DC needs three oxygen tanks and three masks.
