Kings Of Leon Talk Explaining "Socks" On Fire To Their Kids

Caleb and Nathan Followill talk about how are aware their kids are of Kings Of Leon.


Caleb and Nathan Followill told Radio X's Gordon Smart how their children react to their music.

Kings Of Leon have gave us an hilarious insight into how they'd explain Sex On Fire to their children.

When asked by Radio X's Gordon Smart if they're prepared for their kids asking them about the content of their songs, drummer Nathan Followill replied: "It's Socks on Fire. Uncle Caleb's socks caught on fire one night when I was drying them out on the heater."

However, frontman Caleb, who shares four-year-old Dixie with model wife Lily Aldridge, interjected: "I think that song is the least of our worries. We have much bigger things to tackle than Sex On Fire."

His brother Nathan added: "They won't listen to Taper Jean Girl. Ever."

Talking about how aware his four-year-old daughter Violet is of the band, the WALLS sticksman revealed: "Anytime she hears Kings Of Leon's music... yeah she knows Kings Of Leon. 

"Like 'that's uncle Caleb singing, and that's daddy on the drums, and that's... someone filling in for uncle Jared on the bass.'"

Kings Of Leon are play British Summer Time in Hyde Park, London tonight (7 July), where they'll be supported by the likes of Nathaniel Rateliff and The Nightsweats and the Pixies. 

By the looks of things, the crowds are already queuing up to see the band play a career-spanning set as well as hits from their latest WALLS LP.
