I actually have a Kings of Leon anectdote...an old band I used to be in was touring with them and I went to go hang out with my old band. After the show, partying ensues. One of the KoL guitar players is this total Keith Richards wannabe guy...the haricut, clothing, cigarette hanging out as he plays, etc...So we are in a limo and my buddy from my old band and I are drinkin the really great tequila, just passin the bottle back and forth... this tequila was very very smooth..you coulda poured it on roadrash and it wouldnt have burned...good shit. Anywho the bottle gets passed to KoL guitar player dude...he is hesitant to take the bottle...he asks "Is it going to burn?"...seriously, this is what a 21st century rock star is...afraid to take a drink...I was getting drunk and obnoxious and I just laughed when he asked this and said "...And you wanna be Keith Richards?" He and another KoL dude just glared at me...they didnt like me very much.
