BACKSTAGE RIDER: Alternative

Coldplay

No crappy U.S. beers, Stella Artois, or chardonnay for Chris Martin and his Coldplay mates. But there are plenty of other rock star staples like Marlboro Lights, cotton socks, and an ever-important "selection of nibbles" (we think that's food) waiting in the British band's dressing room. As for Martin's wifey and child back home, it's easy to imagine the joy on tiny Apple's face when mama Gwyneth pulls another "Greetings From Boise" postcard from the family's London letterbox.
