If you listen closely to conversations in stylish bars all over the world, skinny jeaned, black shirted people everywhere seem to be saying the same thing, “Kings of Leon? Use to like their old stuff but now they’ve sold out”. In a way it’s true. Nowdays you’re more likely to see them stuck to the front of a school girls folder than on a festival poster. And they have started making their music as catchy as an early winter cold, but I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen it coming. This pic was done in 2007 and even then they weren’t a breakthrough act.
I figure most people, if offered the chance at being the worlds biggest band, would probably take it. Even if meant hanging out with their brothers all day. Give them a break indie kids, and let them be the inspiration to trailer trash that they deserve to be. I still think they’re alright and maybe you should too.
This pic’s been getting a fair few hits on my website too… www.cameronkimjones.com
