How about an invitation for the opening slot on U2's Vertigo tour? But take caution, young Followills. Using the career span of the Beach Boys as a model, we've predicted your future timeline. You may want to put a good lawyer on retainer.

2008 -- Jared goes to trial for dodging the draft. The band sues its record label. Drummer Nathan gets divorced.

2010 -- Kings of Leon sue record label for $2 million after the band's popularity reaches a low point. Matthew gets divorced. The only gig the band plays is a Tennessee high school prom.
2011-16 -- Caleb takes lots of drugs, gets fat and stays in bed for four years. Nathan and Matthew each remarry. Nathan divorces again.
2017 -- Caleb gives rehab a rest and returns to the stage with the band with short-lived success, bumping up its status to state fairs and casino gigs. Nathan gets married again. Third time's a charm, right?
