Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill recently gave a word of advice to young pop stars One Direction, stressing the importance of staying true to yourself and your style.
"Don't try to turn into a rock band or anything," the singer/guitarist told 1D during a Sun chat (via Gigwise). "You are already there and have your music and your fans, so don't try change what you are."
Drummer Nathan Followill decided to give young Direction crew a bit more practical advice regarding the ever-shrinking celebrity privacy. "If you're going to have a party in a hotel room, have a box at the door and take the girls' phones - that's what gets kids into trouble these days," the drummer explained. "Every phone is a camera."
One Direction fanbase, the infamous Directioners, fairly stirred up the rock community this summer through their bashing of rock icons the Who. Plagiarism accusations regarding the similarities between 1D single "Best Song Ever" and the Who classic "Baba O'Riley" caused an uproar among the teen fans as they senselessly ripped the legendary rockers.
As for Kings of Leon, the band released their new record "Mechanical Bull" on September 24 via RCA Records, topping the UK Albums Chart and peaking at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
