No echoes here. Just a load of “meh.”
“I pretty much checked out for that record.”
—Caleb Followill, talking Rolling Stone (via the NME), about the Kings Of Leon’s 2010 album Come Around Sundown. He adds that “I’ve always been like a one-for-all, all-for-one type,” basically contradicting himself in the space of a few sentences. No Caleb, anyone who “checks out” when making an important album with a band, who storms offstage in the middle of a concert just because he’s in a pissy mood (re: that June 2011 show in Dallas) and prompts the cancellation of the tour, AND who declines to get professional help for his alcohol and drug problems (remember, this is a guy who has always touted in interviews his guy-ness and love of cocaine and champagne) even when bandmembers, crew and organization are counting on the group is, put delicately, an asshole and a hypocrite.
More like a one-for-one type, in fact. Meh.
