Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
Killers lead singer Brandon Flowers is a Mormon, but he said in 2004 that he does occasionally drink and smoke. The band keeps their rock star decadence low key, with the drugs and groupies kept to a minimum.
Mark Stoermer, bassist of The Killers, worked as a medical courier before becoming a member of the band.
The Killer's name came from the fictional band in New Order's music video for their song Crystal.
Before joining The Killers, Brandon Flowers, vocalist/keyboardist of The Killers, was in a synth-pop called Blush Response.
Flowers has a fear of flying and of the number 621, coincidentally his birthday. As a kid, an Ouija board told him he was to die on this day. (thanks, Kylie - Ventura, CA, for above 4)
Concerning alcohol, the band has a strict daily schedule in their tour rider - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are reserved for Maker's Mark whiskey and Absolut vodka. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are for Jack Daniels and gin, and Sunday is exclusively the province of tequila and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Neal Smith - "I'm Eighteen"
With the band in danger of being dropped from their label, Alice Cooper drummer Neal Smith co-wrote the song that started their trek from horror show curiosity to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
This all-female group of country rockers were on their way to stardom in the '00s, with a Starbucks deal and major label backing.
