Rock Band Kings Of Leon Take Up Table Tennis On Tour
Rockers Kings Of Leon have swapped boozing and drug-taking on tour for sedate games of table tennis. The Sex on Fire hitmakers have put their wild ways behind them after vowing to clean up their act and they now fill their time on the road with ping pong and darts.
Singer Caleb Followill tells Britain's The Sun, "We still party a little bit. There's not really drugs involved any more. But we try to make sure that we're on the road with bands we're friends with. So last night, after the show it was us and The Whigs who are our friends as well as support band, in the games room, playing a lot of ping pong and lots of darts. We do that most nights, just hang out, and we'll jam a little bit now and then."
And the rockers are so determined to take a more mature approach to touring, they've even given up backstage brawling. Caleb adds: "It's a little harder to recover now. The older you get, you feel every punch the next day. So I've given up on that... There's the odd headbutt now and then but I'd say we are probably closer than we've ever been this year."
