Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill got really sick while performing in Dallas Friday night. The temperature was in the high 90s, which prompted the singer to complain of getting "hot."
He then told the crowd:
"My voice is completely 100 percent wrong. I'm sorry.
I'm gonna go backstage for a second. I'm gonna vomit. I'm gonna drink some beer … and for the record, I'm not drunk … I'm about to fall down here because I'm so goddamn hot. … I'm gonna come back out here and I'm gonna play three more songs."
But he never came back.
Bandmate and younger brother Jared Followill addressed the crowd after he left, apologizing to fans.
"We are so unbelievably sorry. There's no words right now. Caleb's just a little unfit to play the rest of the show.
I know you guys f—ing hate us. I'm so sorry. I can't apologize enough. It's really not our fault. He can't play the rest of the show. … F—ing hate Caleb, not us."
Ouch. Way to throw your bandmate and brother under the bus.
Jared continued on the rant later when he posted this on his Twitter on Saturday:
Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words.
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. Is he basically calling his brother an alcoholic? Seems like there are some major issues that the band needs to address. Obviously there's more to this story than just the heat in Texas.
We hope you figure it out, guys. You're too talented. Besides, your brothers! Where's the love??
