What do other musicians think of Brandon Flowers?
  • Rufus Wainwright: I spent one night with him at a bar, swooning over him along with everybody else. He is so sexy yet so unhappy and also somewhat sane and crazy at the same time. I haven’t met anyone who quite fits the Brando (Marlon) mould as much as he does. There’s this dark, moody, restless . . . figure that’s sucking up all the energy out of the room. Thanks a lot, thanks a lot for not sleeping with me so I can write a song about you.
  • Calvin Harris: Brandon Flowers is hot.
  • Elton John: They’re (The Killers) absolutely brilliant, and their lead singer is one of the sexiest men on the planet.(...) I befriended Brandon very early in The Killers’ career. He has three beautiful children that my kids play with whenever I go to Vegas. Five boys playing together. And I just love Brandon, he loves all different sorts of music.
  • Brendon Urie - Panic! at the Disco: We got thrown into the beef with the Killers’ Brandon Flowers out of nowhere. We had no beef with them. Pete (Wentz)and Brandon threw us into that, man! That was unfair, I love both of them. I love The Killers. Any time I listen to The Killers I hear a bit of Bruce Springsteen, especially now, I think they've gotten more and more Americana rock, which I love. Their take on Vegas is totally unique as well, they've got the desert and it's almost like a pure, pure take on it.
  • Dallon Weekes - Panic! at the Disco: Brother Flowers is a great singer and a songwriter. I'm a fan.
  • Kenneth Harris - Panic! at the Disco: I love Brandon Flowers. His new solo album (The Desired Effect) is unbelievable.
  • Ricky Wilson - Kaiser Chiefs: I love that you know the album by what Brandon’s wearing. ‘Oh, it’s the moustache album, it’s the feathers album’. He’s quite Elton John about it. How can one man who’s so recognisable look so different?
  • Isaac Slade - The Fray: Whatever faith he holds, its just embodied in his songs … we try to do that. (Isaac referenced Brandon, who is Mormon but does not directly express his beliefs in his music).
  • Kylie Minogue: Oh Brandon Flowers!(who she would most like to work with). It's not on the cards but I just think he's amazing. It could work well. I don't think he knows I've even said that, but I'd really love to.
  • Ryan Tedder - OneRepublic: Brandon Flowers is a very pensive, interesting man and we’re very opposite in the way we communicate. With The Killers, we’re still in the process [of making the album] and I can’t speak as to their timing or anything. But I love what we’ve started immensely, obsessively even. It sounds 100% like them and nothing like me. The Killers self-produce, by the way.
