The Killers’ Brandon Flowers on Morrissey: “He’s still a king” - NME
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.”
Now all we are waiting for is Johnny to stand up and defend Moz
