Kings Of Leon on their new music, Led Zeppelin and fine wine

They may be former hillbillies, but these days they’re more about Michelin stars than grits and moonshine

Tennessee’s most A-list family burst onto the scene in 2003 with Youth And Young Manhood. Back then the band were hirsute hillbillies playing raw southern boogie-rock. Thirteen years later they’re chart-topping, less beardy superstars with an arena-friendly sound. And Jimmy Page is a fan. But they’re not resting on their laurels; for seventh studio album Walls they left Nashville and worked with producer Markus Dravs, known for his work with Coldplay, Björk and Brian Eno, among others. Vocalist/guitarist Caleb and bassist Jared Followill check in.
