Kings of Leon on ‘verge of splitting up’

Say it ain’t so, say millions of easily-pleased rock fans. But yes, teen heart-throbs Kings of Leon may soon be heading the same way as other great boy bands by cashing in their chips and planning unsuccessful solo careers. Rumours have been circulating ever since they cancelled their US tour amid reports of problems within the band. And, to be fair, the rumours come from them.

The cancellation came three days after frontman Caleb Followill left the stage during a show in Dallas, Texas. He said he was no longer able to sing because of “heat exhaustion and dehydration”. Aww.

But his brother, bassist Jared Followill, said in a tweet that the band has “internal sicknesses & problems” that go beyond dehydration. “I can’t lie,” he wrote. “There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.” In other words, his brother is a lying bastard.

Drummer Nathan Followill added in a separate Twitter message: “Not so good morning 4 me today. Ashamed & embarrassed by last night’s fiasco.” In other words, Caleb is a lazy lying bastard.

The cancellation of the US tour was announced in a statement on Monday. It said the band members were “devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break”. The band are to return to the road in Vancouver, Canada, on 28 September. The cancelled shows will not be rescheduled. Which doesn’t really tie in with ‘giving the fans the shows they deserve’. That’s giving the fans no show at all.

“Thanks to all our true fans for understanding and helping us through this hard time,” Caleb Followill said on Twitter. But then again, he is a lazy lying bastard according to his band, so why should we listen to him?

  1. Good. They’re vastly over-rated and – I’m reliably told by an ex-team mate of mine who has toured with them – red neck scum.
