Last night, Kings of Leon bassist and Truth or Dare purist Jared Followill ran his SUV into a neighbor's home after being challenged to fucking do it, proving once and for all that he's not a sissy.
"Ran my SUV through my neighbor's garage door at 2am," Followill tweeted. "Lucky me, I bought the house a couple weeks ago. Unlucky me, my hood is destroyed."
Evidently, the house is being demolished in a few weeks, and Followill wanted to get in on the destruction before the construction company got to have all the fun.
Kings of Leon are scheduled to perform in Vancouver next week, kicking off a string of dates around Canada. It'll be the band's first show since Followill's brother, Caleb, suffered an onstage meltdown in Dallas this past July.
That episode forced KOL to cancel the remaining leg of its tour, including a show at Cruzan Amphitheater. Rumors the band was breaking up ran rampant, especially after Followill cryptically tweeted, "I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade."
Jonathan Pierce of The Drums, who recently supported Kings of Leon on tour, thinks the band has run its course.
"I would advise [KOL] to split up and stop making music," he recently said in an interview with Click Music. "They're very American bar rock and it's not interesting, it doesn't affect me at all. That "Sex is on Fire" song is one of the worst songs I've heard in my life."
Pierce, however, did have nice things to say about his friend, Jared Followill. "I do have to say that Jared was a very kind man and he's smarter than he's letting on. I don't think he really enjoys the music that Kings of Leon are putting out. I've had long conversations with him and he's very open to me."
