British singer Paul Heaton has publicly slammed the Kings Of Leon for their unfriendly behaviour, insisting they were the only band to not be "nice" to him at this weekend's (21-22Aug10) V Festival in England.
The former The Beautiful South frontman performed sets before the U.S. rockers at both Saturday's Staffordshire V and Sunday's Essex V - and used his performance on the second day to hammer the Use Somebody hitmakers for their bad attitude from the day before.
Heaton took aim at Caleb and Nathan Followill and their bandmates for having their own compound and for failing to mingle with the other acts.
He told his fans, "I don't like Kings Of Leon; they've got their own compound. We couldn't get in because we didn't have beards... Everyone has been really nice except the Kings."
