Pooping pigeons stop Kings of Leon show: Everyone's a critic!

The band were bombarded by an infestation of birds in the rafters of the Verizon Ampitheatre in St. Louis, Mo.

“I was hit by pigeons on each of the first three songs,” said bassist Jared Followill. “We had 20 songs on the set list. By the end of the show, I would have been covered from head to toe.”

At this juncture there really is just one question to ask: If you were a pigeon, which musician would you poop on?
