Ryan Adams has sparked a war of words with The Killers - insisting he couldn't watch one of their concerts without walking out.
The rocker has blasted the Mr Brightside hitmakers as a Las Vegas novelty act who are only in a band to be famous.
He says, "Fame is an unnatural construct and those who go in search of it are the least likely to find it. I mean, really, does anyone want to sit through a show by The Killers? What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unfortunately with the exception of The Killers."

This guy is an idiot. He obviously doesn't know what he is talking about and definitely needs to read some interviews from The Killers. He is probably insanely jealous that he isn't as awesome as The Killers and that's why he is saying these idiotic things. Also, I would LOVE to sit through a Killers show! He is wrong again.

Trisha what are you talking about? Hes spot on about the Killers. Shallow, talentless and simply not very good. lets see if the Killers are around after ten or so albums, or if indeed when their teenage fans grow up they don't move on to better music.Ryan Adams and Killers are beyond comparison, Ryan farts more talent that pathetic band.

Ryan is a baby. I think he is a brilliant songwriter & musician and I own all his albums (including whiskeytown) to prove it, but he needs to keep his mouth shut when he is not singing. Nobody cares what he thinks about the Killers, who by the way are an amazing live band. Maybe Ryan's new bedfellows Oasis should educate him a little more on his taste is music. The Killers are the only real talented and innovative rock band left in the mainstream.

Ryan Adams- What is he even talking about!? "TK in it for fame..." I hate stupid people who think they have something important to say to the world! Fame came naturally for our boys.....so, he's jealous. It's a natural progression....one person hears great music and soon a whole bunch of other people listen to this great music and then pretty soon....the entire world knows about you and your music....that's fame! Ryan Adams just wouldn't know anything about that! Hey, isn't he Canadian anyway?! He..he..he..

Sorry, but I feel the need to post another comment as I am a huge fan of both Adams and The Killers. I respect Adams that he's been able to obtain a certain level of fame by "accident". If he only got into music for his love and passion of it and his talent propelled him to stardom it is commendable. However, everyone else in the world wants to be in show business to be famous. Everyone wants to be famous and have money and woman and so on. Now, that being said, you must have some type of talent become famous. So weather you like them or not you can not deny the Killers talent.

Errrrr, yes you CAN deny the Killers' talent. Their first album was good but this appears to have been beginners luck. I've seen the Killers a bunch of times although I can't work out why I bothered. Perhaps I kept giving them just one more chance. They are SO DULL live. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Ryan on the other hand? Purely into the music. He can't help shooting his mouth but the fame came by accident. That's clear. Yes, he has recorded some rubbish but the majority continues to be rather wonderful.
