Aha shake heartbreak...

Ok. So. Funny story. Weird stuff happens when you travel. Like, for example, whilst I was rockin out in the beautiful Montreal, I met a guy who closely (not entirely, but very closely) resembled this guy above. This guy being Caleb Followill, King of Leon, himself. So, as you could imagine, when I met this amazingly rad guy that closely resembled Caleb Followill, I was in awe. Not only did he look a little similar to him but he spoke fluent French, was a musician, a poker player, had awesome tatts, knew great music when he heard it and also had an awesome sense of style. Um, can you say (very near) p e r f e c t??
He was not only all of these things, but smart, witty and instantaneously captivating. We hit it off instantly. He taught me a lot about music (what he lives for) and that you should be open to every genre instead of just your favourites, which I tend not to be. I spent a whole 2 days and 2 nights getting to know him and his rad music collection and it sucked majorly to leave the following day. We exchanged email addresses and have emailed sporadically since. However, it turned out to be a good thing that things didn't progress too much further as, apparently, he likes to steal from people on a regular basis, actually, on a more professional basis...The guy that I was absolutely smitten with is a criminal!!!! What a waste of such an awesome being! We still talk a bit but he doesn't know that I know what he does though...its actually a pretty funny story and I am always going to remember that time in Montreal when I hooked up with the French speaking, musically inclined con man!
Despite him being wanted for robbery, he is as close to a 'Caleb Followill' that I will ever get... and to be honest, I'm quite satisfied with that :)

Hi Mareeyah! We met at a youth hostel and hung out with some Aussie guys who later went back to the same hostel and the staff told them that 'My Friend' has stolen from them and some other places around town...It sucks, cos we all got along so well, but he was lying to us all the whole time..haha, oh well :) xx

you know sometimes people are living in certain circumstances where they're forced to make decisions we hope we never have to make and they end up going to wrong way, he is a person as well and from what I've heard from your story he sounds genuine to you. Cherish it as a lovely memory! great story!
