Caleb Followill

This bloke is the lead singer of the increasingly MOR Kings of Leon. By sheer coincidence today is his 29th birthday. What better way is there to celebrate than by having a post dedicated to you on a balding website?

I don't know what it is about whiny voiced singers with indie bands and baldness problems but he is the latest in a long distinguished line of them.


He used to have a great albeit slightly sinister hairstyle, which made him look like a remedial sex offender from the 1970s. In my ideal world, every man would have hair similar to this.


He recently told an interviewer "I'm already going bald and you're making me go balder!"


Although it's not too bad at the moment sooner or later his hair is going to look like a desperate combover.


A few of their songs have mentioned baldness. 'Milk' from their second album contains the lyrics "She saw my combover, her hourglass body". On "The Bucket", from the same album he sings "18, Balding, Star". This song was written about his brother Jared experiencing fame at an early age. Jared is less balding than Caleb so I'm not sure what point he was trying to make.


They may have other songs that mention baldness but I don't really want to have to listen to any more of their music to find out, sorry.

  3. Actually it's 18, balding, hard.

    Sounds like someone is jealous of his sucess and sex appeal. Nothing is Middle of the road about their music, listen to tracks like Four Kicks or Spiral staircase. Point proven! a

    Besides there's nothing wrong with balding. Some of the hottest male actors and musicians haven't got hair, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis. He's in good company!

  4. While researching his baldness I was impressed that many of his admirers still find him attractive in spite of it. I suspect you would still prefer him with his old hair though.

    Katharina, most lyrics sites say you are wrong. Also, the songs you listed are from their first 2 albums. Even their most ardent fans agree that their sound has become more commercial since then, hence the phrase 'increasingly MOR'.
    The jealousy argument is fairly poor and lazy, usually used by defensive fans when their idol is criticised in some way.
    But you are right that there is nothing wrong with balding, except of course the misery, despair, and drastic, uncontrollable change of image it causes.

  8. Though the scoreboard was on at Palisades Credit Union Park a 19 7 win for the 2018 team the event really was an Coach Factory Outlet Store exhibition in fun click here and fundraising, with a check for $35,000 presented at the end of the night to the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund to benefit childhood cancer patients and their families.
    Coughlin, the former Giants coach, even made a surprise appearance and received the biggest ovation of the night. Another Giants legend, Tiki Barber, received a loud cheer as well when introduced by organizer Joe Ruback, the mega Giants fan better known as License official coach factory outlet online Plate Guy.

    The numbers of coach factory outlet players on both the current and alumni teams who claimed not to be hit after getting drilled or who inexplicably slipped back into the action from the sideline without a catch to force the substitution would have been enough to drive crazy any elementary school physical education teacher.

    "If you ain't cheating, you coach outlet store online ain't trying," safety Orion Stewart said. "Got to find a way to win. That's all."

    If there is such a thing as the star of a scrimmage dodgeball game, it was Orion Stewart, who worked up a complete sweat and showed off a big personality. The second year safety signed with cheap coach purses the Giants after playing for the Broncos and Redskins coach factory website last season.
    "I said I wasn't going to play, coach factory outlet online login but I'm a competitor, so I couldn't not play," Stewart said. "Those guys (the Super Bowl champions) were talking a lot of trash, but taking a lot of Ls."

    While many offensive linemen tend to slim down after their playing days are over, the 6 coach handbags outlet foot 6 McKenzie, who played at 330 pounds, still looks like an enforcer. McKenzie is a Willingboro native who earned a master's degree from William Paterson University.

    During the game of Coach Outlet Online Store dodgeball, he just stood on the line dividing the two teams and smoked a cigar, as if daring someone to hit him with the ball. Few even approached. That's the sign of good protection.
