      So they were allowed fish? Interesting...

      This also brings us to the question...is Morrissey a biscuit or cake man?

      A bottle of red wine or 1/4 of a bottle of gin. What an old soak Morrissey! Never knew he liked mother's ruin.

      Nice. Lucozade is subpar compared to Irn Bru, but to each his own.

      Jim was a wee fellow who used to travel with the band. He used to roll around on the floor and keep everyone in stitches.

      That's a relief. I thought Jim might be Jimmy Saville!

      In those days, if he didn't specify, he would have got cheese made with rennet.

      I'm going to assume the crew drank the other 3/4 bottle of gin.

      Not to mention tuna. Yes, it's not on his rider but still I couldn't have imagined him allowing the rest of the band to eat it.

      Amazing find.

      I love the way Moz has crossed our pretty much all of his or added things to it.

      "Carrier bags with names" haha! Classic.

      I sort of love how he's specified a 1/4 of a bottle of gin!

      Can someone leak the riders for each member of the band on the current tour, please? To also include Sir Tom Jones and Sir Cliff Richards catering arrangements for tonight. And what does Kristeen Young eat/drink to get her revved up? What do the roadies eat at a pit-stop in the middle of Kansas? Or pre-show? Etc.

      I'll also put in a request at "Smoking Gun". Thanks.
