BACKSTAGE RIDER: Hall of Fame

James Brown

James Brown

A five-star hotel, a hooded hair dryer, and an oxygen tank--it's all de rigeur for the Godfather of Soul. But we were a bit surprised to see that James needs a special room for his mistress--the wardrobe mistress, that is. (4 pages)

I was surprised to see Mr. Brown did not request any food or drinks for his room, but the dressing rooms had all the food and drinks.
The hair dryer is a big deal, there was only one place in NYC that sold the one he wanted. The wardrobe mistress needed her own room so that James could get wardrobe in the room. The dressing room has a lot of people in it. The best place to get a drink or some food.
