My favourite stories are upside down

There’s a mythological story I really like. It’s factual and fun. Way back in the 2nd to last decade of the previous millenium, there was a band that had such a complex and potentially dangerous stage set up, that they hid a little secret code deep within their backstage rider. They requested There will be no brown M&M’s in the backstage area, upon pain of forfeiture of the show, with full compensation.. Thier logic was less Rock & Roll excess and more functional. If brown m&m’s were found, they knew that the construction and electrical safety of the stage was potentially compromised through lack of attention. Safety, apparently was important to Van Halen. Both for themselves and the thousands of fans who would be in attendance. So, in your note to me, be sure to let me know the name of the band and the colour of the candy. It’s one of my fail safes to decide if I respond to you or not. Because I just get so much junk mail.
