Followill Needs Drugs To Perform On Stage
KINGS OF LEON frontman CALEB FOLLOWILL has ditched cocaine - but he still relies on other drugs to get through his live performances.
The singer stopped taking cocaine after seeing a photograph of himself looking painfully pale and gaunt.
But the star admits he relies on the amphetamine-based narcotic Anderall to get him through live concerts.
He says, "We just looked up one day, deathly pale, and said, 'This isn't good for us.' We'd wear so much make-up to cover it up, I'd wear lipstick...
"Now I see a picture and go, 'What the f***! That was me?' We'd toured for years, then we went home and realised that what we wanted was a good night's sleep - you don't have to do cocaine.
"Adderall helps me remember the lyrics. I don't take too much - just enough to get by."
