You may or may not know the Kings of Leon.
They're the chart topping rock group who performed an exclusive show at Manhattan's Webster Hall a couple of nights ago for an audience that included a number of hip young celebs. Their single "Sex on Fire" has topped the UK charts for weeks, and they were in New York for the release of their latest CD.
Not long ago however, it seems the lads caused a bit of consternation at the world's most famous golf venue, St. Andrews.
During an overserved evening at an adjoining hotel, the boys apparently wandered outside and... relieved themselves! Right there on the Old Course.
...And then Caleb, the lead singer, had to tell the story...publicly...admitting that the incident occurred on the 17th fairway, but specifying that the guys had "stayed in the rough at all times". He also promptly apologized. Group drummer, Nathan, who happens to be Caleb's brother, later expressed concern that they might "never be allowed back in St Andrews". The St Andrews Links Trust, for their part, seemed totally unaware of the incident.
I'm just wondering why the Kings couldn't at least make it to the Castle Course.
