Open Letter to Kings of Leon

February 24, 2009

Dear Fella’s:

I would like to preface what I am about to say with the following; everything I write about is all in jest and I have the utmost respect for you as musician. It really is all about the quality and originality of the music you produce and by no means has anything to do with Nathan and his charming sense of humor, blue eyes, black wavy hair, tight jeans, sexy lips, square jaw or hairy chest. I am just trying to share my appreciation for your talent and the man…. I mean “the band.”

In the past several months I have been writing these darling little tales about you and my love for your music and have developed a bit of my own fan base. I thank you for being an inspiration to me and letting me ride on your coattails, but there is an issue that needs to be addressed. Every day I check my blog activity; I write for a few online sites and keeping up with the stats is all a part of a days work as I’m sure you are well aware. One issue I have come across is the huge majority of people who want to know how tall you are. Seriously, 9 out of 10 search engine results that bring me the most traffic is “How tall is Nathan, Caleb, Jared, Matthew…Nathan,” basically after the word “tall” just insert your favorite Followill….hmmm… what?!…oh.

Guys, come on! This is very important stuff the world wants to know. It is seriously the #1 search followed by Caleb Followill + Drugs, Caleb Followill + alcohol, Caleb Followill + Sex, Caleb Followill + STDs, and Caleb Followill + asshole (I’m sorry Caleb, that is really what they search for but I figure its all the HAer’s jealous boyfriends and maybe your brothers). Listen, you don’t have to write me back, just put the info in your wikipedia bio. I’m willing to sacrifice the blog hits for the inquiring minds.

And people just to give a guesstimate, I figure Caleb is probably about 6’2, so the other guys are a probably anywhere between 5’11 to 6’0. I think Nacho is probably the only short one which makes me think he may very well be a Roloff and not a Followill. Anyway, if you could do us all a solid and let us know that would be great…shoe size would be nice too….Nate, 13-14? Am I right??

hugs and kisses with tongue


This just in: I have it on good authority that Caleb Followill is actually 4’9″ those are some mighty high heels he wears to make up the difference.

very cheeky!

    This is so funny. You’re one talented gal. I love your blog and will recommend it to everyone who loves a good laugh or Kings of Leon.

    I sure hope they answer you!

    I’ll talk to you soon. Take care!

    Hugs from Kat

    I have been loving your stuff for a couple of months, courtesy of Google Alerts.. But I have to burst your bubble. When I met the brothers in November (Matt stayed on the bus), they were all about my height, 5’7″ or 5’8″… And at least Caleb and Nathan were wearing boots with heels. 🙂

  3. Laisa Says:

    I am 4’9″
    And now I just don’t want to meet that guy…not at allllllllll

    I just saw KOL live for the 1st time on 4/28(I was in the 2nd row) and Caleb is definitely not 6’2. I don’t think he’s even 6 feet.He’s probably somewhere around 5’8-5’9. He looked a lot shorter than I thought he would. He’s fuckin hot though.

  5. Oh well, they’re all 10 ft. tall to me ; )

  6. JenJen Says:

    Just compare them to their girlfriends- for instance, Lily. She’s a model so she has to be 5’8″ or so and Caleb is taller than her by 3 or 4 inches (even when he’s wearing fairly flat shoes). It’s not the most perfect form of measurement but…

  7. sullen Says:

    I think they’re between 5’8″ (nathan) and 5’11″(caleb). Jared and Matthew in between. I don’t know though, obv. 🙂

  8. Yes Sir Says:

    I ran into Nathan at a bar 2 years ago in Nashville. That dude was SUPER SHORT. I couldn’t believe it. I would guess 5’5″.

  9. bohemianhamster Says:

    God , you know , you’re right.
    To be honest , I’d like to know too. 😉

  10. @Laisa, that’s super short….even they seem too TALL for you…lol.
