The Killers by Elton John

From Teen people

I always thought pop music was supposed to be about glamour. When the Beatles and the Rolling Stones first started, it was all about music and their look. Me, I could never go onstage in a T-shirt and jeans. Recently, the glamour thing had kind of taken a dive-until the Killers came along. They're one of a very small number of bands that put effort into their stage performance and the way they look. You're always interested to see what [frontman] Brandon Flowers is wearing; he's a bit of a fashion icon and everything looks good on him. He just oozes star quality! And these guys are great songwriters. Every track on their album [Hot Fuss] is fantastic. You ca
n play it all the way through and really enjoy it. When singles like "Mr. Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me" come on your car radio, you crank up the volume and feel good, which is great in an era where there's a lot of mediocrity in music. I can't wait for their next album-I told them not to wait too long to go back into the studio, because we need their excitement! A lot of artists come and go very quickly. The Killers just aren't that kind of band.
