im glad the kings havent made it huge here in the USA. basically, if youre not R&B or top 40 then you dont make it huge here. fine with me, it means i get to see the Kings of Leon in small clubs still! but in europe they are playing monster stadiums and sold out shows....
I don't think there's gonna be Kings of Leon in small venues anymore, even in the USA. They're playing MSG in January... and they're climbing up the charts everywhere.
On one night the crowd was chanting for them to sing one of there songs but from what I remember Caleb said it wan't on the set list or it wasn't rehearsed.
that was adelaide 1. the fans up the front were yellin for soft.
they played it at adelaide 2... who knows if the same people were there the 2nd night though!
Heh, tiny Megan started it.
KOL are HUGE here in Aus.
Unfortunately I'm definitely NOT a fan :( So the fact that everytime I turn on the radio or one of the music chanels - it's KOL and it's driving me nuts! :eek:
Really happy that they've finally hit the big time, though They've suddenly gained a LOT of new fans
And WTF is this 'band wagon' everyone's bitchin about ? :rolleyes: Is that the people who might not have paid much attention to KOL before or heard of them and have only recently been introduced to them and like them? Are new fans not 'real' fans or something?
Isn't that the aim of a music artist.....to gain new fans (as well as keep the existing ones).
Is it a way for long time fans to act like they're better (for some reason) because they have liked them for longer?
Just turned on the radio then and guess what was playing, a Kings of Leon song. I thought they were just another rock band when I saw them 3 times with PJ but it seems they've hit the big time with hit single and album in this country. Hopefully PJ helped them get there through having them as their support in '03.
I was suckered into them finally after hearing "sex on fire" a million times on the radio. I tried getting into them numerous times and couldn't. I just thought they flat out sucked. Now I downloaded their new cd (couldn't see myself buying something I originally hated) and like it alot. I thought they were terrible, but Only By Night is very good. Closer, Crawl, Sex On Fire, Be Somebody, Use Somebody are all kick ass songs.
cold desert is one of the best songs i have heard this year

Definitely the best of the 3 good songs on that album.
thats it on the new album.. the rest sucks.
Their newest CD actually sounds nothing like the other CDs. The new one definitely has more of an arena rock atmosphere to it. I agree with the earlier post that Aha Shake is their best work; beginning to end, that album is awesome.
curse those M20 elitists!
Yeah....they're HUGE here!
I wish I was a fan :rolleyes: I'm spending a lot of time turning the radio OFF and changing TV chanel these days...haha....and it's only going to get worse when they tour here next year :eek:
I definitely think PJ were a help in getting them some more exposure.....no doubt KOL have worked their butts off, but a little help never goes astray in this industry
