CNN profiled Brandon Flowers, talking with The Killers frontman about his solo debut ‘Flamingo’ and if he believed he’s been misunderstood in the press sometimes. “Definitely.

I was very self-conscious, and so I would instantly kind of attack. Now I feel more comfortable in my own skin, and you’re getting a little bit – I don’t know.

The Daily Mail spoke with Brandon Flowers about how his debut solo album ‘Flamingo’ found much of its inspiration from his hometown. “I know Las Vegas is far from perfect,” he explained. “But I still see it as a romantic, iconic place. When I was growing up, British bands like The Cure and The Smiths sounded exotic to me. But I realized the grass isn’t always greener, and I started adding more ingredients. I discovered Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. And Vegas is in my blood. For all its faults, it’s exciting. If anyone can sing about it, I can.” Read more at DailyMail.co.uk.
