Rolling Stones throw it in the toilet 

Rush & Molloy (hat tip: Salon.com) have the story of how Guitar World Magazine polled some rock bands for their real life Spinal-Tap-worthy stories. This one pegged my laugh-meter at 11:

As the Rolling Stones get ready to head out again on the road, Ron Wood can laugh about it - the night he and the lads thought they were all going to be busted.

"We were doing drugs in the dressing room," says Wood, remembering a concert in the early '80s. "Suddenly the tour manager stuck his head around the door and said, 'The police are here!' We all panicked and threw our drugs in the toilet.

"Then Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland walked in."
I hate when that happens.
