Ronnie Vannucci - The Killers' moment of fame

The Killers were ''buzzing'' at their first ever photoshoot.

The 'Runaway' rockers say the reality they were becoming famous hit them when they first worked with a professional photographer.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci said: ''It was our first official photoshoot. We were buzzing at the fact we had a guy with a professional camera in front of us that had an accent.

''We still had jobs, we were working then, so it's f***ing exciting to have somebody come and take pictures of your band and talk about your music and then clock in at the same time. We did that a lot.''

Before the Las Vegas band - which also includes frontman Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning on guitar and Mark Stoermer on bass - knew it they were mingling with stars like Pet Shop Boys and Liam and Noel Gallagher.

Frontman Brandon Flowers recalled being at British magazine NME's awards show, saying: ''Noel Gallagher and Liam Gallagher were there.

''New Order played 'Crystal' and dedicated it to The Killers because we took our name from that song. Liam and Noel were both nice to me, and I'd been afraid of them because of the way they project in interviews. Liam sang [our track] 'Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll' to me.''
