Golf Vs. Shotguns: It’s No Contest
Kings Of Leon can’t be bothered to record a new album – they’re too busy playing golf.
The Kings Of The Swingers have been putting so much time in on the course, recording sessions have been out of bounds.
A source said: “They love golf, they can’t get enough of it.
“Nathan [Followill] is a brilliant player but Caleb [Followill – they're brudders, natch] is having a good go and snapping at his heels.
“Everyone hopes they will have another album out this year but they’re in no rush.
“They are really enjoying life away from the studio.”
Hmm. We at Classic Rock prefer our ‘album delay excuses’ to be a little more rock’n'roll.
Witness this report just in from Blabbermouth:
North Carolina’s sludge pillagers Weedeater have been forced to postpone the recording sessions for their new album after the band’s vocalist/bassist, ‘Dixie’ Dave Collins, shot his big toe off whilst cleaning his favourite shotgun this past weekend.
Collins states: “It wasn’t my intention to shoot off my big toe. This really fucking sucks and the pain is unbearable.”
Incidentally, ZZ Top fans will recall that, in December 1984, bassist Dusty Hill accidentally set off a derringer he kept in his boot and shot himself in the stomach.
Bollocks to golf. This is what we want.
