Earlier this week, MusicRadar conducted exclusive podcast interviews with Caleb and Matthew Followill from Kings Of Leon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The superstar band was in town to play the AJ Palumbo Centre. With a capacity of 6,100, it's surely the most intimate-sized venue on this tour - and now that Only By The Night is exploding in their homeland, Kings Of Leon can probably kiss rooms this size goodbye for good.
Before hooking up with Caleb and Matthew, we dropped by the sound check and found bass tech Jay Schleusener, who was more than happy to show us Jared Followill's main bass and stage set-up. And he let us in on the secret to re-creating Jared's ominous sound that opens the album's lead-off track Closer.
