Isaac Hanson Calls Out Kings of Leon

You gotta love this
Kings of Leon are clearly going through some inner turmoil with the recent cancellation of their national tour, and fellow Okie Isaac Hanson, who fronts a family-band himself, has no problem voicing his disapproval of KOL’s actions.

In a conversation with WENN, Isaac said, “I have a hard time with musicians who act like pricks because it just makes me mad.” He also feels that artists should be more humble. He continued, “If you’re actually making a living doing it, pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don’t love it and people will eventually get pissed off.”

Echoing the sentiment of some downtrodden fans, Isaac took on KOL specifically. “I’m gonna call somebody out on it – the Kings of Leon are running some risks,” he said. “They’re irritating people and you can’t do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans’ willingness to show up.”
I couldn’t agree more.  There is nothing more irritating than musicians with attitudes.  The whole rock star mentality is disgusting.  These people should be thankful for the opportunities that they have and humbled that they have fans.
