Backstage at Voodoo: Flaming Lips, Kiss, Jane’s Addiction Talk Nudity, Epic Festival Sets

November 2nd, 2009 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

Voodoo Experience ‘09 annexed New Orleans’ City Park last weekend for three days of music and festival madness, and people partied hard. They rocked out to the interstellar grooves of the Flaming Lips, the ballsy arena rock of Kiss, the brash rhymes of Eminem, among many others. They rode around naked on bicycles. Yes, naked. And that’s just the bands in these exclusive interviews we’re talking about. (For much more from Voodoo, stop by Fuse.TV.)

Check out the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne as he explains why people in his upcoming video for “Watching the Planets” are biking around the cold woods in Portland, Oregon, wearing nothing but smiles. Oh, and if you listen closely, you can hear Coyne’s Flaming “Nips” Freudian slip. Nippy indeed! Plus, Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro talks about “closing” the Le Ritual stage for Kiss, and Kiss explain that they were thinking of going onstage dressed as “normal people” for Halloween — we’re glad that idea got nixed.

Be sure to tune in Friday, November 6th at 10 p.m. EST for a Fuse-tastic take on the Voodoo Experience.  

But for now, enjoy the interviews and photos of Voodoo’s biggest moments and Rolling Stone’s recaps of big sets by Eminem, as well as Lenny Kravitz with the Flaming Lips.
