Even Famous Bands Shouldn't Pee On the Old Course
If you haven't heard of the band Kings of Leon, who rock it out with "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody," you probably listen to shitty music. That said, one thing you should know about Kings of Leon is that when visiting the Old Course in St. Andrews, the most famous golf course in the world, the band enjoys taking a piss on the links.
The band arrived in St. Andrews and though it doesn't say it, was most likely staying at the Old Course Hotel on the 17th hole. The band admitted that after the hotel gave them beer and hooked up the Oklahoma Sooners football game, their favorite team, the bathroom was too far for them to walk. So, they did what any normal person would do -- they went outside and pissed on the Road Hole, the most famous hole in the entire world.
But the bathrooms were three floors away and the game was really exciting so we went outside and peed on the world famous St Andrews golf course.
“It was on the 17th fairway. Though we stayed in the rough at all times, we’re very sorry.”
Well, that sure was nice of them to stay in the rough, since the fairway on the Road Hole is about 5 feet wide in just about all parts. Most likely they were hanging out around the Jigger Inn, and I'm sure they weren't the first people to stumble out of the famous little pub and let loose on the grass.
I worked in St. Andrews and unlike Augusta National or Pine Valley over here, the Old Course is basically a glorified park. Hell, they even close the whole thing on Sundays to let the course rest and people can go out and have cookouts around the grounds.
No worries Kings Of Leon, I will still download your stuff, especially if you can get some sort of "pee" reference on your next track.
