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.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
