Here is what some rockers do to psych themselves up...

BARENAKED LADIES: they blast classic rock by AC/DC or Van Halen backstage to pump them up to get wild and crazy onstage.

O-TOWN: they get spiritual. they form a circle, say a little prayer, and right before they run out to perform, they give each other a hearty "Love you, Bro" all around.

DMX: he calms himself down before and after each show by steering a remote-control car down the backstage halls.

MATCHBOX TWENTY: they sing the first verse and the first chorus of "Always and Forever" by Heawave with their pants down-before they go out and bring the house down! If they dont do it, they are afraid they are going to have a bad show.


WHO DOES THE STARS TAKE ON THE ROAD WITH THEM?....

P.O.D: they take a tattoo artist and a body piercer on the road in case the mood should happen to strike.

MACY GRAY: she brings a chimpanzee on the road to out with her.

NO DOUBT: they each have their own trainers to keep in shape. Each band member has his or her own personalized fitness regimen.

SHANIA TWAIN: she takes her own sniffer dog to check for bombs at every vevue.


PARTY! HOW TO THEY WIND DOWN FROM ALL THAT ONSTAGE ADRENALINE?....

R.E.M.: they have a special hospitality room where guests get fresh fruit-but no grapes-and a copy of USA Today.

SOUL DECISION: member Ken Lewko heads for the bus to play video games-Ms. Pac Man is his favorite.

OZZFEST: on the 2000 tour, a tech guy won an $800 bet-for eating Ozzy Osbourne's Dog's poop.

PANTERA: they drop a few thousand dollars after each concert by putting on a fireworks show for the crew members and other bands they are touring with.


PICKY POP STARS:

98 demands a doctor to be around 24 hours a day

EVAN AND JARON ask for purell after shaking peoples hands

LIMP BIZKIT neads a 'working toilet'

CHRISTINA AGUILERA reqests a catering crew recycle and never use plastic or Styrofoam.

BACKSTREET BOYS ask for 24 peanut butter sandwiches


Sometimes musicians demand some pretty outrageous things in their contracts:
  • CHRISTINA AGUILERA: What she wants is Flintstone vitamins on her catering cart.
  • KID ROCK: he demands a new bag of Hanes Boxers at every tour stop-he obsolutely refuses to wear the same pair twice.
  • DIANA ROSS: her contract actually specifies that she must walk on carpet at all times.
  • JAKOB DYLAN OF THE WALLFLOWERS: Every venue's vrew is forbidden from making any references to Jakob as 'Bob Dylan's son' at any show.
  • BJORK: she requires comic books and lollipops at every show.
  • PRINCE: demands that no one look him in the eye or wear sunglasses in his presence
  • LIMP BIZKIT: they keep the show rollin' with one pair of silk panties, size 5-6.
  • AEROSMITH: demands 2 packs of bubble yum per show.
  • DESTINYS CHILD: require chips and dip, but only on fine china-styrofoam and plastic are unacceptable.

Here is the food and drink you might find on the catering table backstage...

  • 98 DEGREES: insist on a very special dish every single night: Sunday, steak; Monday, fresh fish; Tuesday, fried chicken; Wednesday, lasagna; Thursday, prime rib; Friday, lamb chops; and Saturday, lobster.
  • ROD STEWART: often asks for haggis, the Scottish national dish made with sheep heart, liver, and lungs.
  • MARIAH CAREY: loves a little bubbley, but dont want to smear her lipstick. So she asks for sipping straws be on hand.
  • FAITH HILL: needs M&M's and a 'good' bottle of red wine.
  • BUSH AND BECK: they request way too much food, but its nice to hear that they donate their leftovers to charities like 'Rap and Roll' and 'Rock and Wrap It Up!'

IN THE DRESSING ROOM...

  • SUGAR RAY: They hang pictures of Ol' Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra!
  • BRITNEY SPEARS: requests that her telephone number be used for outgoing calls only. If it rings, the show's promoter is fined $5,000!
  • ROBBIE WILLIAMS: decorates with kumquats, a bonsai tree, a pair of undies, and a framed photo of Bob Holness, host of the English quiz show Blockbusters
  • MARILYN MANSON: has a box filled with kitty litter. Why? Just in case the bathrooms are out of order....Im totally serious.
