By any standards, the Kings of Leon are unique. Consisting of three brothers and their first cousin, all surnamed Followill, thenbsp;quartet from a God-fearing Tennessee background has conquered the music world on their own terms. They have audaciouslynbsp;mixed elements of classic rock with grunge, garage and a very contemporary attitude. The result is music that has found a readynbsp;audience between 15 and 50. It has also been used in several significant movie soundtracks, accelerating their rise. Their song-nbsp;writing skills have earned the admiration of none other than Bob Dylan himself.nbsp;

This first-ever full-length, authoritative biography of the band, by Michael Heatley, traces their rise from local hopefuls to USnbsp;Hot Modern Rock chart-toppers (singles 'Sex On Fire', 'Use Somebody', and 'Notion' all reached Number 1) with the platinumnbsp;album Only by the Night. A background and lifestyle that kept them well away from popular music until 1997, when theirnbsp;father sensationally resigned from the church and divorced their mother, has produced some fascinating results. Exposure to thenbsp;rock'n'roll lifestyle led to crises that have had to be resolved as a band and as individuals, and The Kings of Leon: Sex On Fire recounts them all.
