Kings of Leon

The band Kings of Leon seemed happy just to be on the Grammy Awards red carpet Sunday in the wake of their canceled U.S. summer tour, which inspired rumors about substance abuse on the part of singer Caleb Followill.

No matter if they win or lose in the best rock album category, the band still plans to live it up after the show.

"The party is always in the same place either way," drummer Nathan Followill said, joking that that place would be a local El Pollo Loco.

Most of all, however, Kings of Leon are looking forward to watching Paul McCartney and to the tribute planned for Whitney Houston.

"I think there will be some really awesome performances," Nathan said before trying to lighten the mood. "I got the inside scoop on my celeb phone."
