Southern Rock Revivalists

Kings of Leon didn't exaclty find God in the late 80's when they were traveling the deep south with their evangelist father. What they found instead was Rock and Roll. Right now these lucky buggers (all between the ages of 18 and 25) are touring with U2 and their album Aha Shake Heartbreak is on every garage rock fan's Ipod. The highlight so far:
In Seattle, on April 25th, the Kings hit their stride. "Eddie Vedder came out and sang 'Slow Night, So Long' with us," says Nathan. "We blew the fucking roof off the place." -RollingStone
