Kings of Leon, the Features

The good-looking young men in Kings of Leon seem to exert a lot of energy making sure they appear to be living the rock-and-roll dream: In an icky new Rolling Stone fashion spread they can't get their grubby hands inside enough gold lamé bras. Yet when you listen to the band's Southern boogie-rock or watch them onstage tucking their hair behind their ears, what you see is their struggle to define their postadolescent selves in an environment few young men can understand--even the good-looking ones.
