Lollapalooza: Backstage With Silverchair and Interpol

August 5, 2007 8:40 AM ET

On Saturday, Rock Daily went backstage at Lollapalooza to check out the behind-the-scenes action. We caught up with Australian band Silverchair just as they were about to sit down to dinner in the artists' dining area (our chat was briefly disrupted by Ryan Cabrera, who asked for a photo with Silverchair singer Daniel Johns). Rock Daily next jumped on a golf cart and rode to the opposite end of Grant Park to see Interpol arrive for their headlining set in front of more than 40,000 eager fans. The night's end found us chatting with the artists' lounge bartender, who said she proudly served Wilco's Jeff Tweedy at the fest.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
