Kings of Leon‘s Caleb Followill

I came to Kings of Leon a little late as a music fan, and that’s sad, as the more I listen to them, the more I just love this band. What’s nice though about listening to a band who’s made several albums is that you can enjoy a huge selection of songs. In Kings of Leon’s case, there are six records to dig into. Kings of Leon’s music is just completely sexy, and for Seattle’s show they gave us a sweet selection of songs all at once. Strongly reliant on 2008’s Only by the Night, with last year’s Mechanical Bull as a close second, the music amped up even higher with a really cool light show. They also did this cool thing where it looked as if it were snowing. Caleb Followill’s vocals were a rare thing of beauty, even in such a large venue. A few of my favorites were “The Immortals,” “Charmer,” “The Bucket,” “Don’t Matter,” “Molly’s Chamber,” “Be Somebody,” “Black Thumbnail,” and naturally, their best known-song, “Sex on Fire.” Here’s to wishing the southern band could be here instead, all the time.
