PJ Pals Kings Of Leon Receive Grammy

by Kathy Davis on January 31, 2010

It helps to have friends in high places. Oh, and to write and record really good music…. good friends of Eddie Vedder, Followill family rockers Kings Of Leon were awarded the 2010 Grammy for Best Rock Song for their big tune “Use Somebody”. We can’t say “Pearl Jam was robbed!” when it goes to a deserving act. (Not to mention, we figure the band doesn’t concern themselves much with “winning” or “losing” when it comes to making music).

Kings Of Leon opened for Pearl Jam for nearly all of the 2006 tour of Australia (and in Honolulu), and for four dates of the 2008 East Coast Tour.

Thanks to early reports from the finger-on-the-musical-pulse folks at Billboard.com - Congratulations to them all!
