Kings Of Leon Accept 'Glee' Creator's Apology

CNN.COM - Following a heated war of words, Kings of Leon and Ryan Murphy are back in tune now that the band has accepted the "Glee" creator's public apology.

"We don't hold grudges," frontman Caleb Followill tells Rolling Stone.

As Marquee reported in January, Murphy lashed out at the music group for refusing to let his cast sing "Use Somebody" on the show.

 "F— you, Kings of Leon," he said. "They're self-centered a-—s, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument."

Drummer Nathan Followill then suggested that Murphy "let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra," while Caleb told CNN that Kings of Leon had simply turned down Murphy's request because the band was unfamiliar with "Glee" and "Use Somebody" was being over-promoted at the time.

Murphy has since apologized, admitting that he was quick to judge.

"Who am I to say 'F— you?' That's not what I meant," he said. "I completely understand when artists don't want a show or another artist to interpret their songs. In fact, I respect it. It's their personal work and I'd feel the same way. We get turned down all the time and I don't fight it or even go back after a rejection."

For their part, the guys of Kings of Leon say all is forgiven.

"I'm glad he said something," Caleb tells Rolling Stone. Adds Nathan, "I'll just be glad when I can check my Google alerts and don't have to read anything about us and 'Glee.' That'll be a wonderful feeling."

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade.

Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
