15 of the Easiest Green Room Requests

Outrageous hospitality riders for mainstream bands have shown fans just how pampered (and sometimes ridiculous) performers can be. From Van Halen's notorious bowls of M&Ms, with all the brown ones removed to Lil Wayne's requirement that a chartered Lear jet fly him and his crew to and from the venue and the only acceptable hotel rooms in his world are Presidential Suites in 5-star hotels, the things they ask for (and get) frequently go beyond outrageous. Christian bands are a lot easier to work with as the most outrageous request found is for different color Sharpies!
