Hanson takes aim at Kings of Leon
Hanson have sparked a new feud with the Kings
Of Leon after taking aim at the Sex On Fire hitmakers for their bad
The group has often been criticized by their
peers for their dour, reluctant rock star image and now fellow
family act Hanson have taken a swipe at them for the way they let
fans down after scrapping an entire tour following frontman Caleb
Followill's decision to walk offstage midway through a recent show
in Dallas, Texas.
Caleb Followill has since been put on vocal
rest, but Hanson star Isaac Hanson is convinced the problems in the
feuding band run deeper and are more serious than the singer's
He tells WENN, "I have a hard time with
musicians who act like p**cks because it just makes me mad. I just
sit there and I go, 'You know what, dude, no matter whether you're
in a band just surviving or you're in a bus playing stadiums, one
way or another you're still among the rare breed of people that are
actually getting paid to do it.'
"If you're actually making a living doing it,
man, pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don't love
it... and people will eventually get p**sed off.
"And I'm gonna call somebody out on it - the
Kings of Leon guys are running some risks. They're irritating
people; you can't do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image
affects fans' willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed
"Everybody has their demons, everyone has
their challenges... I'm a bit of a hothead in certain
circumstances, but you gotta temper it because your fans are there
and they've paid good money to see a show, and you gotta bring it.
I don't wash my dirty laundry in public, I do my dirty laundry
backstage... I have flipped the bird at a few people that deserved
it and told them to go 'f' themselves."
And he urges the Followill brothers and
cousin Matthew, who was born in Hanson's home state of Oklahoma, to
sort out their problems or run the risk of becoming the next Oasis:
"They got that too and it hurt them ultimately, because it made it
hard for people to have a lot of fun at their shows - because they
were worried that Noel (Gallagher) was gonna get p**sed off (and
walk off)... But I don't think that they (Oasis) necessarily didn't
