The lounge room is racked with fine wines and liquors, a hat-stand covered in wigs and hats speaks of post-jam cross-dressing parties and a neon Michelob sign hangs over the theatre-sized stage area, illuminating a wall-mounted photograph of the band from 2003, back when they were millennial indie rock hopefuls tagged ‘the Southern Strokes’; hick-haired and nostril-deep in their wild youth and cocaine-fuelled young manhood.Reports of a cleaned-up Kings Of Leon living like Ned Flanders during a particularly pious Lent ever since Caleb had an onstage meltdown in Dallas in 2011 – walking offstage midway through a show and prompting a year-long hiatus that was essential to stop the band disintegrating – have been mildly exaggerated.Fans of the Southern rockers’ older material who may have doubted whether or not they’d hear their favourites were reassured when oldies “Slow Night, So Long” and “The Bucket” followed but, while everyone seemed happy enough, the vibe was ranking low on the euphoria scale.
It's a match made in rock 'n' roll heaven--with a bunch of Angels standing in as witnesses.Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill swapped vows Thursday night in Santa Barbara with his Victoria's Secret fiance Lily Aldridge, a source tells E! And with these camera-ready attendees, we can't wait to see the rest of the wedding pics...“Marriage is great, our wives are great, our girlfriends are great…Our wives’ girlfriends are great…” KOL are staring down their reinvigorated seventh album ‘Walls’ from the security of some mighty fine livin’. Because just five years ago, Kings Of Leon were heading for hell in separate luxury handcarts…Just last month, guitarist Matthew Followill (cousin to Caleb, Nathan and Jared) welcomed his first child. Now the drive up to.....where Caleb is getting married. Jared told People that the actual ceremony was going to "may 25 people or so" but a lot of people will be at the party." Congrats to the happy couple!
On Wednesday, Caleb's younger bro/KOL bassist Jared dropped a hint that a wedding was in the offing on his Twitter page. WATCH: It doesn't get much hotter than the Victoria's Secret "What Is Sexy? Tickets are .50-.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats are also on the bill. Kings of Leon is out on the road in support of its seventh studio album, “WALLS” (the tile is reportedly an acronym that stands for “We Are Like Love Songs”).But we spend a lot of time sober, which is actually kinda cool.” His drumming brother Nathan cools his well-heeled boots: “Sober to us, though, is like taking a three-day break.” Laughing, chiding, cracking caps, shooting breezes; Kings Of Leon feel like a family again.All married and all (except bassist Jared) now fathers, the once hardest-partying band of the noughties have spent their downtime since 2013’s sixth album ‘Mechanical Bull’ having Followill clan dinners, smoking under the bleachers at PTA meetings and organising local food festivals with their spouses.“I definitely would not be having beer like this normally,” Caleb insists, flicking cigarette ash onto the carpet and raising a fourth bottle.
