Details in Contracts

January 8th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

From aWeekly Standard article on mistakes in numbers in the Administration’s Pantybomber report:

You’ve heard about Van Halen’s legendary backstage rider, right? The one that stipulated that all the brown M&Ms be removed from bowls in the band’s dressing rooms? It’s been immortalized as the archetypal act of prima donna pique, but the reason for it was actually practical. The band’s requirements for its elaborate stage show were complex and demanding, and failure to read them carefully and comply would endanger the performance, and possibly people’s safety. Brown M&Ms in the bowls served as a small signal that there might be other, potentially catastrophic oversights.
