Kings of Leon and Gary Clark Jr.

Media Title

I used to love the hell out of Kings of Leon; “Slow Night, So Long,” from their second LP, 2005’s Aha Shake Heartbreak, was my absolute jam. One of the best first tracks of a bluesy, aggressive rock record out there, it totally hooked me in. But then KOL felt like a different band, and the Followill kin started to seem diva-like when they’d abandon sets at shows. “You know, no matter what set list you play every night, there are going to be people leaving there saying you didn’t play their favorite from their favorite record,” Nathan Followill told me. “But on the other hand, you’re going to have people leaving there saying, ‘They played every one of my favorite songs.’” Three Grammy Awards later and six albums in—their latest being last year’s Mechanical Bull—and these Southern rock charmers are still pressing on, keeping their rabid U.K. fan base happy.

As for Gary Clark, Jr., this Texan’s been on a steady, steep rise for a few years now, and the Kings have him guesting every night as an opener on tour. Fresh from the success of his own Grammy win (Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Please Come Home”) and his thrilling rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” alongside Dave Grohl and Joe Walsh on Sunday night’s The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles on CBS, this It-boy of the guitar world’s sure to keep dazzling folks at giant festivals and intimate gigs alike. He’s got some kind of blues. / Bill Chenevert
