Brandon Flowers (born June 21 1981 in Las Vegas, Nevada) is the vocalist and keyboardist in the American rock band The Killers. He was raised in Nephi, Utah, where the Flowers family moved when Brandon was eight. He later returned to Las Vegas.
Listening to the radio in his car after his first college class, Flowers heard the song "Changes" by David Bowie. He fell in love with the piece and realized he wanted to make music. He went to his next class, but walked out half-way through.
One day, as he was entering the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel , Flowers was handed a free ticket to a nearly-finished Oasis concert, where he realized the importance of guitars.
The Killers were spawned shortly thereafter when Flowers responded to an ad placed by guitarist David Keuning in the Las Vegas Weekly looking for a vocalist in order to form a band. Mark Stoermer later became the bassist and Ronnie Vannucci became the drummer.
He has an interest in the word "Aria" and the word "Basket Case". His favorite bands are Morrissey and Psychedelic Furs. He wishes to put "Aria" in a song one day. He first wants to meet someone named Aria before writing the song.
