* ReadTheFinePrint: If you're the promoter and Van Halen tells you to put a bowl of M&M's backstage, and there'd better not be any brown M&M's in the bowl, do it. You ''do not'' want David Lee Roth to see a brown M&M in that bowl. If he sees one, it means there is a very good chance you did not follow the technical specifications for all the equipment and safety meaures in their show. That means the show may not go on, which pisses off Van Halen, their fans, and also comes straight out of your pocket.

* BunnyEarsLawyer: Nobody did ''being a rock star'' better than David. Say what you want about his ego, he had the talent to back it up, the personality to make it work, and the business savvy to keep himself in the black. The whole "no brown M&M's" thing was just a very clever way to make certain the promoters did ''their'' job so ''he'' could do his job.
