Kings of Leon cancel gig as band member Jared hints at deep problems
From metro.co.uk

Kings of Leon have cancelled a show in Houston – just one night after seemingly drunk frontman Caleb Followill stormed off stage at a gig in Dallas and refused to continue. Fellow band member Jared has since hinted that the band are experiencing problems.

An excerpt from the article:

Quote:
Caleb did not come back on stage. His fellow bandmate and brother Jared expressed frustration as he apologised to fans on Caleb’s behalf.
He said: ‘We are so unbelievably sorry, there’s no words night now, honestly beyond our control. Caleb's just maybe a little unfit to play the rest of the show. We’re so sorry guys, we love you all so much. I know you guys f****** hate us, I can’t apologise enough. It’s really not our fault. He can’t play the rest of the show. We will be back as soon as possible. F****** hate Caleb, not us.’

Jared later took to Twitter to continue apologising.

He wrote, ‘Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words.’

After the band cancelled the gig in Houston yesterday, Jared again took to Twitter to apologise, suggesting that Kings of Leon are experiencing real internal problems.

He wrote: ‘I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade.’

Wow! This is sad I hope Caleb can sort himself out. I love Kings of Leon So I also hope whatever problems they're experiencing can also be sorted.

It's so sad when bands break up.

They haven't said anything about breaking up! Having problems is not the same as calling it quits. They're going to have fights, all bands and all families for that matter, do. They shouldn't let it effect their work, but clearly it has and I suspect it's been going on for a while. Whatever the issues are I hope they can work through them, for the sake of the fans and the music. It's just a shame for the tour.

There's a thing called karma and it seems to be having a field day with Kings of Leon. (http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/news/...nd-Arcade-Fire).

There was a video on youtube of Caleb talking to the crowd, It was quite hard to watch, he seemed very out it. I just hope he gets some rest and help if it's needed.

Quotes from Caleb, the video has been remove now I think.
Quote:
“I have no goddamn idea what the **** is going on right now,” Caleb said. “All I know is that I’m married to the prettiest girl in the whole ****ing world. And you guys are one of the best crowds we’ve played for this whole summer.

“And these guys right here, these bald-headed mother****ers, they can’t fight for ****. I fought them. I just want you guys to know that we’ve had the best damn time we’ve ever had and you guys are so ****ing awesome, thank you so much. I’m going to go backstage for a second. I’m going to vomit, I’m going to drink a beer and then I’m going to play three more songs.”

This makes me so incredibly sad. Later for them being a band, they're family and I hope that he sorts himself out and they work things out for that reason alone.

They all seem like over-grown frat boys to me.

WORD. Co-sign. The overrated part, as well. I remember at some point the summer before last when every other celeb was saying how much they loved Kings of Leon and that was their favorite group. As if I needed another reason to be sick of them.
