Nathan Followillís injured ribs are healingÖ
The Associated Press (via Billboard) recently interviewed Kings of Leon lead singer, Caleb Followill, who talked about the band's upcoming return to the stage this Sunday in Philadelphia. It will be the first show since drummer Nathan Followill recently injured his ribs when the band's tour bus stopped short to avoid a pedestrian. Below are some highlights:
Caleb on his younger brother Nathan wearing protective gear: "He has this protective gear that he's wearing that's there to help him. (On Thursday), we went in (to rehearsal) and we kind of loosened up a little bit, played five or six songs. (On Friday), we went in and played more, but by the end of it he was definitely tired."
Caleb on Nathan needing to be on his A-game: "Hopefully he continues to heal. We're going to throw a long set at him this weekend so he better bring his A-game, otherwise you're going to have a three-piece up there with no drums."
Caleb on the possibility of the group performing a Jay Z song on Sunday: "That would be a first for us. I was online looking up all the artists that have come from Philadelphia. There's quite a well of talent that has come out of that city."
Caleb on being excited to write some new songs: "I am very excited for the future. I think we'll really go in there and write some songs we're proud of, but at the same time, I'm ready to get back on the radio, so I want to write some hits."
