Flowers Denies Rift With Drummer

THE KILLERS frontman BRANDON FLOWERS has denied rumours of a longrunning feud with drummer RONNIE VANNUCCI - insisting stories of a rift are "not true".
The singer sparked reports of tensions between the pair in March (09) after comparing their relationship to The Police rockers Sting and Stewart Copeland who famously fell out during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
But Flowers is adamant stories of major problems between the two Killers musicians have been greatly exaggerated.
He tells British magazine NME, "It's not true. I mean tensions come and go but at the moment everybody's being pretty nice to each other. We disagree about everything from what a single is going to be, to how many days off we are gonna have per week. We go through all that stuff. The band is a democracy and in a perfect world you'd have the same four answers. But the fact is, we don't."
Vannucci adds, "There is a happy, homey feel in the band lately. I can confirm there have been no fights."
