A little while back fans were going crazy over a member of the rock band Kings of Leon claiming the band denied the musical TV show Glee rights to use their music after being asked, but now we're hearing that the story may not have been entirely true.
Producers behind hit TV show have dismissed reports they were denied permission to use songs by the Kings of Leon for a special episode, insisting they have never expressed interest in showcasing the band's music.
It was bassist Jared Followill who had claimed the rockers had been approached to feature their hits on the popular all-singing-all-dancing series, following in the footsteps of Madonna and Lady Gaga. Followill alleged the band had rejected the request, saying, "We could have sold out so much more. We turn stuff down constantly."
But Glee's co-creator Ian Brennan is baffled by the rocker's remarks because they've never tried to contact the band. He says, "The Kings Of Leon thing I didn't really understand because we didn't approach them. I don't know where that came from.
Not only was that story untrue, but he claims most of what you hear is most likely untrue, "I would say probably 80 per cent of the people who you heard are going to be on Glee is probably news to us."
What do you think?
