Caleb Followill's “Kurt Cobain moment”

Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill has apologised for his outburst at Reading earlier this summer, calling it his “Kurt Cobain moment.”

The Tennessee rockers were booed during their headline set at the festival, where they described the crowd as “frozen”.

“We were on the road and I’d just found out my house had been broken into,” he said. “We took it out on a lot of people. Me in particular, I took it out on audiences where we had a big backlash and I took it out on the crowd."

“It was my Kurt Cobain moment when I was hating the success and I was scared and thought people are gonna think that we did this on purpose.”

The apology comes the week before the new Kings of Leon album ‘Come Around Sundown’ is released on October 18.
