Product description

'The Little Red Riders Book' is a collection of many of the world's favourite musical superstars and icons excessive, strange and fascinating backstage demands. Not a day goes past without hearing about the sometimes ridiculous, sometimes lavish, (sometimes extraordinarily plain) requests of the world's biggest, and most influential, musicians and artists. These demands are known in the Biz as Riders and are a detailed, often humourous, insight into a superstar's, or a rock bands, personality and lifestyle. In this fresh and unique reference guide for music and pop culture vultures alike, the "Little Red Riders Book" zips through the last fifty years of rock and roll to bring the reader the plain, the strange, the weird and sizeable requests that many artists require when performing live around their world on tour. Many new upcoming bands only require booze, fags and sarnies to get them through the gig but in time, and with fame, that rider turns into a monster-size list of diva-ish demands. Learn what some of your favourite bands need on tour to make them give the best show of their life; what special item makes the Artic Monkeys tick? What canine related request does Lily Allen need? And what foodstuff can 50 Cent really not live without? It may only be just rock and roll but many superstars, divas and artists like it a certain way. Their way. It contains a brilliant foreword by legendary BBC Radio One DJ Steve Lamacq. "A little gem of a book". David Lister, The Independant, Saturday March 8th
