Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has announced that he and wife Jessie Baylin are expecting their first child in December, reports Us Weekly. The couple was married in November 2009 in Brentwood, Tennessee.

As Kings of Leon continue to lay low on the music end, its members have stayed quite busy personally: bassist Jared Followill got engaged to girlfriend Martha Patterson this past April, while singer Caleb Followill and wife Lily Aldridge welcomed their first child earlier this week.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
