Singer brands the Followill clan sellouts
Despite being a Kings Of Leon fan, Liam Gallagher has said that he doesn’t like the band’s new album ‘Only By The Night’.
The singer was discussing his favourite records with Rolling Stone when he hit out at the Followill clan.
“I like Kings Of Leon, but I don’t know about this fucking new record,” he declared. “I like the old stuff. I like (Caleb Followill’s) voice. When they first come out I was going, ‘Who the fuck is this?’ They were cool, and now they’ve all got their sleeves cut off.”
Gallagher went on to suggest the Tennessee band had “sold out”, and that they were trying to emulate U2.
He added: “It seems to me they’ve gone for the bucks, man. I’m not dissing them because I fucking really like them, but it’s like they’ve got this U2 sound and you can do better than that.”
Gallagher though did list the bands he is into, declaring: “The band that I like at the moment is Kasabian. They’ve got it. They’ve got the look, the tunes, they say just the right amount of stuff, they don’t fucking rub it and rub it and rub it. I like them and the Arctic Monkeys are great, but they’re not rock stars. That’s really it.”
