According to The Mirror, GUNS N’ ROSES have requested a porcelain toilet on their backstage rider for this year’s Download Festival at UK’s Donington Park.
The reporter reported: “I’m told Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and the rest of the band flew in for their THREE HOUR headlining slot by helicopter, before being whisked off to a compound the size of a football pitch. Access was denied to anyone who isn’t part of the tour group.
“Inside they had home comforts from America flown over, including their favourite Hershey bars and extra cheesy pizzas. Anyone who’s ever been to a festival is familiar with the horror of the portaloo, so it’s understandable the band demanded special porcelain bogs to ease their… comfort.
“I’m told super silky toilet paper was also requested for the lads. Well, all those dodgy festival burgers can take their toll…”
A source told the source: “When organisers of Download got GUNS N’ ROSES’ requests they were gobsmacked. It is the biggest rider the festival has ever seen, they have never seen anything like it. But they made sure it was exactly as they wanted.”
