BACKSTAGE RIDER: Hall of Fame

Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash

No latecomer to patriotic flourishes, Johnny Cash required an American flag "in full view of the audience" while performing. And there are few performers TSG would rather have a drink with--even if it had to be Classic Coke--than the Man in Black. (4 pages)

That rider is exactly how I would have pictured it being from Johnny Cash. The guy was a superstar but he still put "Please" at several points in the document. He truly was a great person. Other bands and musicians would be wise to take a lesson from The Man in Black.
Some of these contract riders are so over the top with their requests, but this one actually seems relatively reasonable. Cash was very to the point, I like it.
