Yeah, this is going to be the start of something bad. Right, Ryan Murphy?
It doesn't seem like there are too many people in this business you have a soft spot for the Kings of Leon. There fans are loyal, for sure, but every time we turn around, we feel like there is someone with some major beef with them. This morning, it's Hanson.
In a new interview, the brothers laid in thick on the band for canceling their tour to deal with some issues, including Caleb Followill's "exhaustion." Issac, the eldest Hanson, explained:
"I have a hard time with musicians who act like pr*cks because it just makes me mad. If you're actually making a living doing it [making music], pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don't love it and people will eventually get p*ssed off. I'm going to call somebody out on it - the Kings of Leon are running some risks. They're irritating people and you can't do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans' willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out. Everybody has their demons, everyone has their challenges. I'm a bit of a hothead in certain circumstances, but you've got to temper it because your fans are there and they've paid good money to see a show, and you gotta bring it."
That last bit was definitely for you, Caleb. Remember that time in Dallas you stormed off the stage and the show was canned?
Isaac makes some very important points, but still, there might be some serious stuff going on with Caleb and if he needs help with that, he needs to put himself before the fans, the band and the music so he can get better. He can be a bit selfish if it means he'll truly be bettering himself.
