Kings of Leon The New Spinal Tap

(Gibson) Kings of Leon will debut their documentary movie, Talihina Sky: The Story of Kings of Leon, in July and have admitted their story is not only a "rockumentary" but close to a "mockumentary."

Bassist Jared Followill told Bang Showbiz: "Oh, we are Spinal Tap, totally, I don't know how they got that film so perfect." Guitarist Matthew Followill added: "You'd think the actors were in a band, maybe they were in a band before, they nailed so perfectly, it was like the beginning years of our band."

In This is Spinal Tap, the hapless eponymous rockers get lost in a maze of corridors as they try to reach an arena stage and Jared confessed it remains all too real. "Spinal Tap was a huge downward curve, the whole film, and when you're in a band coming up you see the same people and go through the same venues and have the same complaints, it's really funny," he said. more on this story
