Get a laugh at Axl Rose’s rider…

Everyone knows rock stars demand the strangest things. We’ve all heard the Led Zeppelin and Van Halen stories, and anyone who has ever read Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt knows just how perverse those demands can become. But really, when you think of the one rock star that’s likely to top ’em all, the name W. Axl Rose is more often than not tossed around.

In preparation of Guns N Roses‘ highly anticipated South American tour, Rose’s rider — which is a fancy word for this list of demands — has leaked onto the internet. What’s on the list? Our favorite 80’s comeback frontman, as Andina reports, “asked for wines, beers, vodka, red and white roses, and a ‘square melon,'” in addition to an “exotic fruit that cannot [be missed] by any means.”

In a sense, it’s kind of a let down. One expects Rose’s rider to sport everything from kangaroos playing guitars to whiskey bottles of Jack Daniels autographed by Jim Beam. However, come March 25th, when the band touches down in Lima, the band is bringing the largest technical staff the country’s ever seen for a concert. After all, if you’ve kept up on your GNR updates, Rose is a prime target these days. So, let’s be happy Axl gets what he needs.

Otherwise, it might come to this…
