Footage would have been used in new documentary
Kings Of Leon have said that the film footage of them making their 2003 debut album was stolen.
The band recently had a test screening of Talihina Nights, a documentary charting their success, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. They said that they could not feature footage from sessions for debut album ‘Youth & Young Manhood’ because it had been swiped.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the footage, Nathan Followill said: “We had filmed every bit of the process. Us in the garage, writing songs, learning E chords and G chords, really good stuff.”
He added: “But we had a rental car, and we left the camcorder in the car, and it was stolen. They stole the most priceless footage. People are going to want to know more about those early days, but we don’t have it.”
