Kings Of Leon Blast Critics At Lollapalooza

KINGS OF LEON frontman CALEB FOLLOWILL halted the band's performance at this weekend's (07-09Aug09) Lollapalooza Festival to blast their critics in a vulgar rant.
The Sex on Fire hitmakers, who opened the Chicago, Illinois festival, found fame in the U.K. and abroad before establishing a fanbase in their native country, where they were largely ignored by mainstream music outlets.
And after drawing a crowd of thousands at the outdoor event on Friday (07Aug09), Followill stopped his act to lash out at those who ignored the group in the early stages of their career.
The rocker told the crowd, "A few years ago at travelling festivals, maybe 10 people would be out there to watch us. And we'd walk out with our moustaches and outfits, and those 10 would leave and we'd be f**ked... We know there are a million bands out there who deserve to be where we are. Lots of people have lost faith in Kings of Leon, but f**k it, man. We're having the times of our lives, right?"
