Nathan Followill
Kings Of Leon rocker Nathan Followill has dismissed rumors his singer brother Caleb enrolled in rehab following the cancellation of the band's U.S. tour.

The group axed a number of shows in July after Caleb walked offstage midway through a concert in Dallas, Texas amid complaints about the intense heat and problems with his voice.

The band subsequently went on hiatus and online gossips suggested Caleb booked in for treatment in rehab, but Nathan is adamant alcohol was not a factor in the group's decision to take a break.

He tells, "Ah, no. No rehab. The drinking definitely...

Kings of Leon
Kings of Leon have been urged to split up by the frontman of one of their recent support acts.

The Drums singer Jonathan Pierce insists that touring with the Followill brothers and cousin Matthew didn't endear him to the family band, currently on hiatus - and he's definitely not a fan.

He tells, "I would advise them to split up and stop making music. I don't think they're really helping anybody - they've never made a song that's really touched me in any way. I honestly think that the new Britney Spears record is better than their songs.

"They're very American bar rock and ...
