Kings of Leon drummer calls out Aussie golf course after they refused him and his tattoos

"Welcome to the 1950s"

Kings of Leon’s drummer Nathan Followill has called out a golf course over in Australia because they didn’t let him play because his tattoos were uncovered. 

Followill, fresh off performing a couple of shows in Auckland over the weekend, tweeted that he’d always wanted to play a round at this golf course, so he was pissed off when they didn’t let him have a swing. 

“A Sydney bucket list golf course for me just went on the fuck it list,” he tweeted. “I was told I would have to cover up my tattoos due to a ‘no tattoo policy’. Welcome to the 1950s and a hell of a way to grow the game.”

The Tennessee-born stickman then followed up his original tweet with a couple of more lighthearted ones, getting some jokes off at the expense of the ‘no-ink’ policy. 

“I will invite them to our show but they will have to show a fresh tattoo to get in,” he wrote about whoever didn’t let him on the golf course. 

Next, he tweeted out a photo of some wearable tattoo sleeves, saying they could be a fix to the problem. 

Not bad chat from the rockstar, not bad at all. 

As mentioned before, Followill and the rest of the Kings of Leon just left NZ after performing two killer shows in Auckland. The band is made up of Nathan, his brothers Caleb, Nathan, and Jared, and their cousin Matthew, and by all accounts they had a great time playing to the Kiwi crowd. 

Nathan himself tweeted about how fucking good we are to play to. 

“Thank you Auckland for one hell of a start to the tour,” he tweeted after their first show. “Y’all were beyond amazing.”

After the second show, the bloke said he was “blown away at how amazing” the crowd was, while also hinting at a return sooner rather than later.
