Cato Blasts Kings Over Shower Security
GROOVE ARMADA star ANDY CATO has taken to the web to slam the KINGS OF LEON for their demanding behaviour at England's V Festival last month (Aug10).
The electronic music duo were on the bill at the music event at both Staffordshire and Essex alongside the Sex on Fire headliners.
But Cato soon learned he wouldn't be able to mix with the rock giants after arriving at the artists' area - and finding the band had assigned security to keep the showers and toilets to themselves.
On his blog, he writes, "Over in the artist area there was already a queue for the washrooms... But the waiting went on for a long while due to a faulty water supply. Then I noticed the empty shower block just the other side of some temporary fencing.
"A couple of us found a gap in the barrier. Out of nowhere came a very large man. 'Reserved for the Kings of Leon' he said, 'and so is this half of the artist toilets'.
"It's hard to believe that someone actually phoned their agent and said 'listen I know that Paul Weller, Kasabian, Florence (Welch), Stereophonics, Groove Armada + co are all sharing the artist village and facilities, but we require that you put a fence down the middle of the toilets and showers and put a large man there to keep them just for us.' But somebody did."
