Fall Out Boy Uncensored: The Exclusive Video

February 21, 2007 6:00 PM ET

Consider your day made. Not only are you looking at a real, live (OK, digitized) version of the new Rolling Stone (on stands Friday,) but the behind-the-scenes footage from Fall Out Boy's cover shoot is now available for your viewing pleasure. As we mentioned yesterday, it includes all kinds of excellent visual tidbits involving light-saber battles, vocal gymnastics and, as you can already see, plenty of shots of Pete's manly-but-still-emo torso. Enjoy.

Tomorrow we will put up excerpts from Brian Hiatt's article, in which the following topics are addressed: Pete's manic personality, the true nature of his suspiciously intimate friendships with Ashlee Simpson and Michelle Trachtenberg and Patrick Stump's thoughts on being the lead singer in a band fronted by somebody else. Stay tuned!

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
