Brandon Flowers is the lead singer for the Killers, an extremely popular band. Brandon is also Mormon. He was born in Las Vegas, but moved with his family to Payson, Utah when he was 8. Then, they moved to Nephi, Utah. Although his family moved from Vegas, he was always enthralled with the Rat Pack era’s music. When Brandon was 16, he moved back to Vegas to finish high school. He later worked in casinos, and scoped for young aspiring musicians, like himself.
He found that Dave Keuning shared his love for Oasis, and they dreamt of fame together. Ronnie Vannucci and Mark Stoermer joined Flowers and Keuning, and they played their first gig together in 2002.
Brandon admits he hasn’t lived in perfect congruence with LDS teachings, and was quoted in The Observer in the UK, “even when I slipped I still believed what I believe.”
“Flamingo” was released in 2010.
