Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill tweeted early this morning that he was "too drunk" to finish work on the band's upcoming album. "Wine isn't for everyone, but it is definitely for me," he wrote. He then tweeted: "Just tried for a sequence to the new album. Very exciting stuff. I can't quite nail it down due to the being too drunk. #Tomorrow". But the bassist may have learned a lesson about mixing booze and social media. "My 'drafts' on twitter should be titled 'drunk thoughts you might tweet tomorrow if they're not too offensive,'" he wrote about an hour after his earlier confessions. Followill, 26, was rumored in 2011 to be battling a "dark demon" of booze, and a source claimed his bandmates even tried to get him to clean up his act. “They are trying to get Caleb to go to rehab," the source told USMagazine. "It is mostly for alcohol. That’s why they ended up cancelling the whole tour... he drinks like a fish. They all drink." Kings of Leon are set to play at a number of festivals this summer, including The Governor's Ball in New York City.
