Skip to comments.Sheryl Crow's Backstage List & Carbon Footprint (Hypocrisy From Toilet Paper Diva!!!)
Posted on 04/23/2007 8:49:06 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
When it comes to Sheryl Crow's touring requirements, if it's Tuesday, this must be Bombay. Gin that is. The rock star's performance contract includes specific day-to-day instructions on what kind of booze Sheryl needs in her dressing room (TSG has never seen such attention to detail in any other concert rider we've posted). For each show, Crow requires 12 bottles of Grolsch beer, 6 bottles of "local" beer, and a bottle each of "good Australian Cabernet" and "good Merlot." As for the harder stuff, promoters are directed to purchase specific booze depending on what day of the week the concert falls, as the below rider excerpt reveals. Additionally, when the global warming warrior hits the road, her touring entourage (and equipment) travels in three tractor trailers, four buses, and six cars. Now that's a carbon footprint!

GMTA!! I was just quickly scrolling through to see if anyone posted this comment! LMAO!!
When I was younger and in England, I used the bathroom at Heathrow. On the edge of each sheet were the words “Government Property”. My father insisted we save the used paper and return it to its rightful owner. We ziplocked it closed really well and mailed it back to a labor leader when we got to the states.
I was puzzled over that as well. No size specified.
I can't image anyone buying my socks for me much less asking them. Weird and somehow creepy.
Actually, a tour manager once gave me a very good reason for Van Halen including that "no brown M&Ms" clause in their contract rider. He said it was in there because tour management knew that if the venue actually DID remove the brown M&Ms, they'd know not to expect any technical problems with the show, because the venue actually read the riders and took them seriously. If there were brown M&Ms, they knew they could expect tech problems with the show.
Don't know if that's true or not, but it makes strange but somehow good sense to me.
It's sold as "Bud" or "Bud Beer" i.e. Budweiser (Budvar) in Europe, but for obvious reasons they can't use that name here.
Actually that would be quite funny to see toilet paper rolls flying on stage.
Knew some guy who once dated her years back before she made it solo.
He said there was heavy mileage. But if you have her early albums you already know why. She’s a hippie chick.
I heard Lance is a Bush supporter or otherwise conservative - which seems to be a plausible excuse for their demise as a couple. I bet he just got tired of her.
That beer looks like a ripoff of my girl Stella.
I love Stella Artois. In the summer it goes down like water. :)
I think its something more exotic than alcohol.
Actually, that is what beer tastes like when they put some real hops in it!
In the mid 90’s my better half worked at a major hotel in West LA that had many an awards show and benefit. One was a Tommy Hilfiger (sp?) fashion show with Gwen Stefani - before she was mega star and Cheryl Crow was the ‘headliner’.
My daughter was about 9 yrs old and like many kids of staff execs got to see the show.
Gwen was very nice and gave her an autograph. Crow was a total beotch... too good to deal with the little people (literally- Ha).....
Never really liked her since. She has been going toward the country music audience, but as far as I’m concerned no different than the Ditsy Chix.
At the very least a SoftSoap dispenser... wouldn’t you think???
Very silly... very creative.... ; ~ )
That’s okay. The TP remark kind of took over the news moment. Sort of blew them out of the toilet bowl on this one.
You silly girl!!! heh heh!
LOL! Great animated .gif
A classic potlatch!
Sheryl Crow and her “one-sheeta toilet paper”!
Google will target this bigtime!
Lol, ‘heh’ is right!!
No offense to my friends Down Under, but I have yet to encounter such a thing...
I love yer posts kiddo!!!
Thank you devolve, and you really have ‘a way’ with words, lol.
Thank you antceecee, I appreciate that.
Agreed, Grolsch pretty much blows.
She's a sexist too...
I guess Crow thinks that her Australian merlot and cabernet gets here via a biodiesel-powered spatial anomaly.
No, she’s clean as a whistle. She wants YOU to be nasty stinky.
“On the fly” phrasing
I should use that in a text graphic
You are good at ‘on the fly’ phrasing although there isn’t much occasion for certain phrases, lol.
I kinda liked the ‘little dab’ll do ya’ too.
That’s great one too
Google Search already has dozens of links to blogs and even FR on the Sheryl Crow uno-sheeta only scenario
Maybe she uses the beer to wash her butt. How else could she attract a guy?
Yes, I imagine a lot of blogs are talking about it. When something so stupid comes out it is a great topic.
Dumb as she is, she’s gotta feel dumber over this. Or maybe she’s too dumb to see it, lol.
all i have to say is I would NEVER accept either food or drink from this woman who only uses ONE square of TP....she’s an ef’ing idiot! no wonder lance dumped her....too funny....I just drove back from cincinnati today and laughed myself sick listening to the fox personalities talking about this TP issue! too too funny! and then of course they got going about a Pres Hitlery appointing Bill “roaming ambassador”....does this woman not even realize how funny that is? All he’s ever done since he married the wicked witch is roam!!!!
Try a Harpoon IPA and talk to me about hops!
Like throwing a hotdog down a hallway!
I’ll be back atcha!
6 postcard of local interest with stamps
1 bar of soap
Glad to see someone on that crew is literate.
However, if they’re sharing one bar or soap between them, I say, please increase to amount of toilet paper supplied.
If there are 30 crew members, and each has two healthy bowel movements a day, that means 60 squares of toilet paper are needed per day.
A twelve pack of Charmin Ultra, with 200 sheets per roll, equals 2400 sheets, and costs 9.99 at DrugStore.com. This should last Cheryl and her crew 40 days, if I’ve done my math correctly. If Rosie shows up, add 800 sheets per day of usage for her.
Charmin is safe for your sewer or septic system, and it’s made in the USA.

She wipes with her hand and then..
Crow is a woman, talking to women, in their frame of reference.
She is not discussing men or going #2. She's talking going #1. Women, having smaller blathers among other things, go #1 much more often than men. Ever notice to lines at Ladies versus Men's rooms? Unlike men, most of them, have to pat 'it' dry each time they go, with a wad of squares. Folding one square in half, sounds reasonable to me, and would save tons of tissue.
Crow stumbled onto something here.
I heard on fox news Crow said it was a joke...
a joke? Is she, or is she not, the spokesperson for Global Warmining? NOT FUNNY SHERYL ...How do you expect anyone to take your cause seriously. YOU REALLY BLEW IT>
Yeah, stumbled is a good word for it.
