A Peek Behind The Curtain!
2006, The NY Times ran a story on the demands of rock stars out on tour. Ozzy Osbourne insists on an eye, ear, nose and throat doctor at each venue. Meat Loaf needs a mask and one small tank of oxygen. David Bowie requests that the dressing room temperature is between 14c and 18c and Paul McCartney must have a large arrangement of white Casablanca lilies in his dressing room. Mick Jagger must have an onstage autocue with the lyrics to all the songs, it would also tell him the name of the city in which they were performing.
