Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill is apparently an equal-opportunity crowd-basher, as he has now followed up comments made earlier in the year about American audiences being inferior to those in the UK (“Kiddy pop or hip-hop, that’s pretty much what America is”) with criticism, via Twitter, of a huge UK festival crowd.
“Reading? What the fuck?” Followill tweeted (via NME) following the Kings’ headlining set at the Reading Festival last night. “Zero love for the kings. I know it was cold but holy shit, y’all were frozen. I can only hope Leeds is in better form.”
I thought rock bands were supposed to make the crowd go wild, not the other way around.
