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.
The "Midnight At The Oasis" singer is an Old Time gal.
You may not recognize his name, but you will certainly recognize Peter Lord's songs. He wrote the bevy of hits from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound
, plus a collection of other classics for the likes of Aftershock, Ali and Goodfellaz.
