Kings of Leon have revealed that they were once asked to sign a fan’s newly-broken arm.
The band – made up of brothers Caleb, Nathan,Jared Followill, and their cousin Matthew Followill shared the story during a recent interview with Radio X. Asked by host Gordon Smart to describe the maddest thing they have ever seen on stage, Caleb Followill replied,
“We’ve seen somebody come over the front with a badly broken arm.”
Nathan Followill continued: “But we just came off stage before the encore, so we go cool off – whatever. And they’re like, ‘Can you please just come sign something real quick? Somebody broke their arm coming over the barrier and they refused to go until you sign her arm, so when her cast is taken off, the first thing she sees is you guys.”
“So a couple of us actually signed,” Nathan confirmed.
“Around the bone,” Caleb added.
The four time Grammy winners, released their seventh studio Album Walls in October; produced by superstar Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Florence and the Machine), at Hollywood’s Henson Recording Studios.
