King of Leon frontman Caleb Followill has revealed that he suffered from image problems when he was a youngster.

The singer told Q magazine that he would run in extreme temperatures and lived of a diet of coffee, despite not being overweight.

“I always thought that I wasn’t good enough,” he said. “I’d do anything to keep my hands and mouth busy without eating.”

Although Followill admitted he had now overcome his diet problems, he said he was still concerned about his image.

“I want to look like I can defend myself. I want a guy to look at me in a bar and know he can’t talk shit to me or run me over — even though he probably could,” he added.

King of Leon are currently on a UK tour. You can purchase tickets through Gigwise here or by calling our ticket hotline on 0871 230 1098 for more details.
