Flowers Lives Childhood Dream

Subscribe to The Killers alerts

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers still gets starstruck when he's socialising with his childhood idols SIR Elton John and Bono. The rocker met the music superstars when The Killers hit the big time, and he admits he still has to pinch himself when he's out partying with his new celeb pals. He says, "It's all a bit unreal. I grew up worshipping U2. These days, I hang around in bars with the band and Bono invites me backstage to sing with him. I also get to hang out with Elton John. I'm such a fan that it's hard not to act like a teenage girl in his company."
