According to the Lumineers, their drummer, Jeremiah Fraites, was once on the receiving end of a face slap by Elton John. The band dished the details while on Gordon Smart's Xfm radio show:
"We saw Elton John's suit and his brightness and his entourage and Elton John turns and [Jeremiah] says 'I'm sorry man, we're in the Lumineers and we're just big fans of yours,' they explained."
"He says 'the Lumineers!' and he comes over and our drummer says, 'there is no frigging way you listen to our album' and [Elton] slaps him in the face and says, 'the hell I didn't! I definitely did!'"
The band said that the incident went down at the recent Grammy awards where they failed to bring home either of their two nominations.
