David Lee Roth

Post by Laredo »

In the comic where David Lee Roth meets Kevin, Roth says "I fuckin hate brown m&ms!" The whole thing about specifically stating in Van Halen's contract to have a bowl of m&ms with the brown ones removed actually had a purpose, besides giving the band an excuse to trash the fucking arena. It was placed in an odd spot in the contract, to make sure that whoever was reading the contract over was doing a thourogh job. It worked several times, preventing potentially deadly mistakes from happening. When Roth saw brown m&ms at a gig in mexico, he trashed up the backstage area a bit, and due to the contract not being read over properly, the set actually sank into the stage causing 80 thousand dollars worth of damage. Newspapers blamed the loss of money on Roth's backstage riot.
