Snoop Dogg Rolls Into Rothbury on Tricycle for Crowd-Pleasing Set

July 4, 2008 10:30 PM ET

"It's 4:20. It's time to smoke," hollered Snoop Dogg just three songs into his afternoon set, pausing to take a puff from an overstuffed blunt. Never mind that it was actually 4:32. The lanky MC, who took the stage riding a tricked-out three-wheel bicycle, delivered a crowd-pleasing set, touching on songs both new ("Sensual Seduction") and old ("Gin and Juice"). Dressed in an out-sized white T-shirt, the affable rapper tempered his Don "Magic" Juan audacity with just enough of Deputy Dog's "awe shucks" demeanor. After all, there aren't many people who can tell a crowd of women they want to "put it inside you," and sound disarmingly charming doing so.

“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."
