Backstage With the Kings of Leon: Nathan Followill Takes His Bad Self Off the Market

June 6, 2007 1:35 PM ET

Sorry, ladies: Nathan Followill is going to get hitched, and he's bet his fellow Kings of Leon $100,000 that he's never going to sleep with another woman. This was just one of the tidbits that Austin Scaggs turned up when he caught up with Nathan and Caleb Followill backstage at New York's Roseland Ballroom yesterday, just moments before they went onstage. Also covered: their next single, "Fans"; four-wheeling at their new Tennessee spread; playing the main stage at Bonnaroo; and smiling and waving at the Olsen twins.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
