Brandon Flowers - Brandon Flowers misses band bonding over booze
The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers says he misses the ''camaraderie'' of drinking with his bandmates since he gave up booze.
Brandon Flowers only misses drinking because he doesn't get to hang out with his bandmates as much.
The Killers singer - who is a practicing Mormon - is now teetotal and hasn't touched alcohol for around six years but he admits he misses the bonding opportunity a drinking session provides with his bandmates Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci Jr.
He said: ''I do think about it. I should say I don't miss anything, but I do. I miss the camaraderie of being with the boys.''
The 32-year-old rocker doesn't often crave alcohol - which he gave up after recommitting to his religion, which doesn't allow followers to touch booze - but would have liked a glass of something strong close at hand during a recent turbulent flight.
In an interview with Q magazine, he explained: ''In March this year we took off from Bogota, Columbia, heading to Mexico. It was stormy and I've never been so scared in my life. Years ago I saw a psychiatrist to get over my fear of flying and this ruined it all for me. I felt like I'd lost all the mental training that I'd gone through. I felt like I'd lost all the mental training I'd gone through.
''I could have done with a couple of big ones then!''
Brandon was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church) - which the vast majority of Mormons are part of.
Mormons have a strict health code that doesn't allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea and other addictive substances. They also have a strict law of chastity, requiring abstention from sexual relations outside of marriage.
