- Kings of Leon celebrate majestic year
By Aidin Vaziri - Tuesday Aug 22, 2017
It might feel as if Kings of Leon has slipped off the radar, but the Nashville band has quietly had one of its biggest years to date. Its seventh studio album, “Walls,” isn’t only its first to hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200, but singles like “Waste a Moment” and “Reverend” have seemingly camped out in the upper reaches of the alternative rock charts. The group — brothers Nathan, Caleb and Jared Followill and cousin Matthew Followill — is back on the road for a victory lap, performing on Thursday, Aug. 24, at Shoreline Amphitheatre. And while its live show remains a mostly sleepy affair, songs like “The Bucket,” “California Waiting” and “On Call” are unimpeachable rock anthems.

Matt Olson: sixth time with A’s a charm?Five cups of coffee, five demotions to Triple-A Nashville.The ultimate short-timer.Sunday’s trade sending Yonder Alonso to Seattle cleared playing time at first base, and the plan is for Olson to be in the lineup when the opposition starts a right-handed pitcher.Melvin repeatedly has called Olson, 23, the first baseman of the future.For now, that means platooning with Ryon Healy, who will play first against lefties and serve as designated hitter against righties.Everybody who gets up here wants to stay here.Olson has tried to stay level-headed while trying to adjust to all the transitioning, which has been possible because as a player with contractual options, he can be moved up and down without being sent through waivers.In his first five stints with the A’s, Olson hit .198 with four homers and nine RBIs in 18 games, appearing mostly in right field.Three of his stops with the A’s, he played just one game before getting shipped out.Twice, he got just one plate appearance.With Nashville, Olson hit .272 with 23 homers and 60 RBI in 79 games.Matt Joyce completed his two-game suspension without pay for directing a gay slur toward a fan in Anaheim.John Shea is The San Francisco Chronicle’s national baseball writer.12:35 p.m. MLB NetMatt Olson’s roster spot was created when catcher Ryan Lavarnway was designated for assignment Saturday.
