Foo Fighters Incredibly Enormous And Complicated Concert Rider!

For a band with six members, Foo Fighters don't really need a lot of food or drink before they hit the stage.

NME got a hold of the band's tour rider for their appearance at Glastonbury over the weekend, and though it runs 92 items deep, it costs only about $185 -- which is about $30 per member.

Here's the list, which is filled with almost all healthy stuff:

1 Fiji water

1 Schwepps soda water

1 coconut water

1 Pom Juice

1 12-pack of Diet Coke

1 fresh orange juice

1 Ocean Spray cranberry juice

1 case of Vitamin Water

1 case of Red Bull

1 case of Gatorade

1 pack of Starbucks coffee beans

1 fat free organic milk

1 Edensoy milk

1 pack of avocados

1 pack of tomatoes

1 dark chocolate bar

1 pack of bananas

1 pack of apples

1 pack of pears

1 pack of kiwi fruit

1 pack of seedless grapes

1 jar of peanut butter

98.5 The Fox Night Slammer Nikki Sixx Officially Retires From Touring!

First Motley Crue stopped touring, and now 98.5 The Fox Night Jock Nikki Sixx looks like he'll follow suit.

Even though there are a couple of new Sixx A.M. albums in the pipeline, Sixx says in a Facebook post, "I have no immediate tour plans unless I get a wild hair up my ass or something or somebody really inspirational comes along... I guess I'm unofficially retired or maybe just expired at this time. [It's] nice to give 100 percent of my time to my wife and kids."

Sixx certainly hasn't stopped working this year -- besides the Sixx A.M. albums, he's still got his Sixx Senseradio show and another book coming out this year. "I got two books in the works and I am in talks to develop a TV show (not reality), as well as The Dirt for Netflix and The Heroin Diaries play. Yup, I'm retired. Haha!"

There's probably another reason why Sixx doesn't want to tour anymore -- he just had hip-replacement surgery in April.

Phil Lesh Says Grateful Dead Stunk!

Phil Lesh says the Grateful Dead "didn't deliver" at the original 1967 Monterey Pop Festival .

Before closing the 50th anniversary concert there two weekends ago with his Terrapin Family Band, the bassist told Rolling Stone that sandwiched between The Who and The Jimi Hendrix Experience at the landmark '67 festival, the Dead  "did not play well...Between The Who tearing it up, doing a great set, and then destroying the stage at the end of their set, and then Jimi playing a fantastic set and then lighting his guitar on fire … what are you gonna remember, who came between them? No. It's gonna be just like a big shadow, some murky space."

Lesh says that in some ways Monterey was began a Grateful Dead tradition of "blowing the big ones...So no, [Monterey] was not a big career-changing moment for us like it was for so many others. But that was fine. We didn't really care."
