Hanson’s Isaac Hanson has slammed Kings of Leon for their recent behaviour.

Earlier this month, Kings Of Leon  scrapped their US tour so Caleb Followill could overcome a voice problem and exhaustion.

It came after the singer walked off stage at a gig in Dallas amid accusations from fans that he appeared drunk.

Speaking about Kings of Leon’s onstage behaviour, Issac told Wenn: ''I have a hard time with musicians who act like pricks because it just makes me mad. If you’re actually making a living doing it [making music], pinch yourself every day, because it goes if you don’t love it and people will eventually get pissed off.''

He added: ''I’m gonna call somebody out on it - the Kings Of Leon are running some risks. They’re irritating people and you can’t do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans’ willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out. Everybody has their demons, everyone has their challenges. I’m a bit of a hothead in certain circumstances, but you gotta temper it because your fans are there and they’ve paid good money to see a show, and you gotta bring it.

He also compared the band’s problems to that of Oasis, that fans may not continue their support for the band at future gigs: ''They [Oasis] got that too and it hurt them ultimately, because it made it hard for people to have a lot of fun at their shows - because they were worried that Noel [Gallagher] was gonna get pissed off and walk off.''

Meanwhile, Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has rubbished suggestions that his brother Caleb Followill has been kicked out of the band.
