"I love everything about it" says guitarist
Kings Of Leon are no strangers to high-end recording studios, but in their recent interviews with MusicRadar, band members Matthew and Caleb Followill revealed that many of their songs begin their lives in Apple's GarageBand.
Speaking about the process of coming up with new guitar licks, lead guitarist Matthew said: "If it's really good I'll pull up GarageBand on my computer. It's awesome for musicians.
"If you're in a hotel room and you have your computer it's got an internal mic. You just press record and do whatever you want – you can cut it up and put it into pieces. It's great – I love everything about it."
The star also recognises GarageBand's potential as a full-on production tool, saying: "It's just so easy to work - and if you really get into it you can even make a whole song, even a whole album if you have to."
Matthew's cousin Caleb seems to be equally keen on Apple's software, telling MusicRadar that he uses it to come up with songs ideas to play to the rest of the band.
