On the Bus With Tegan and Sara: A Tour of the Pair's Rolling Home

May 15, 2008 12:13 PM ET

Tegan and Sara had already begun packing up the bus they've been calling home while touring behind The Con, when Rolling Stone arrived for a tour Monday night, but Tegan Quin assured us it would have looked the same fully stocked. "Other bands come on our bus and are like, this is not a bus," she laughs, pointing out the labeled drawers for everything from "fruit" to "shoes," and the no-shoe rule on the tidy vehicle. Just hours before the twins' final gig on their current trek (after a brief break they'll appear at Bonnaroo and on Cyndi Lauper's True Colors tour) Tegan showed us everything from fan-made pinatas to the band's current obsession, a This American Life DVD. Click here for the full tour and live shots from the group's show at New York's Terminal 5.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
