The Killers’ Brandon Flowers on Morrissey: “He’s still a king” - NME

Excerpt:

Brandon Flowers of The Killers has revealed a few of his favourite artists, or “kings” as likes to refer to them.

“Brandon has many kings,” Killers drummer, Ronnie Vannucci told NME right before their Glastonbury Pyramid Stage headline set.

“Yeah, I have about fifteen kings. Liam [Gallagher] is one of them.”

Listing other stars he admires, Brandon went on to namecheck “Don Henley, Peter Gabriel, Morrissey would be a king, Bono would be a king, Springsteen would be a king.”

Asking about Morrissey‘s problematic politics, Flowers replied: “He’s still a king. He’s unparalleled in what he’s achieved and his prowess and his lyrics and his sense of melody, it’s just incredible. I forgot he was in hot water though, so I shouldn’t have brought him up.”

Travis on how they blagged their way into Glastonbury (and nearly ended up giving Morrissey a lift) - NME

Excerpt:

“Morrissey was playing, and he requested a blacked out Jeep to take him from where he was to the stage. They didn’t have one, so one of security said ‘Could you go and pick up Morrissey?’ We were like, ‘Alright!’ But then security looked at the car and it was just a mess of mud and champagne bottles.

“They were like, ‘Oh, he’s very, very particular with what he wants’ so we started cleaning up the car and hoovering. We were just about ready to go and they came up and went, ‘Oh no, we found one, it’s fine’.”

Healy continued: “We’d have definitely gone into chauffeur character to see what would happen with that.”

Would they still give Morrissey a lift these days, after...
