Brandon Flowers - Brandon Flowers no karaoke king
The Killers singer Brandon Flowers admits he's not very good when it comes to karaoke.
Brandon Flowers is no good at karaoke.
The Killers singer claims he has only picked up a mic to sing to a backing track once in his life as a teenager, and at the time his famous vocals weren't fully formed.
He said: ''I only ever did karaoke the one time. I sung Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger'. I was working at a French restaurant and it was a Christmas party. We went to a Thai restaurant and they had karaoke, so I did it. I was about 18 or 19, and honestly, I wasn't a good singer.''
By the time The Killers got to making their debut album, 'Hot Fuss', a few years later, the 'Somebody Told Me' star's voice had strengthened and he was becoming obsessed with David Bowie.
He added to NME magazine: ''Everybody's making a big deal out of Bowie's new stuff, but 'Heathen'  is the s**t. It's the last great Bowie record - I'm not afraid to say it. It's awesome. We stole the bassline from 'All These Things That I've Done' straight from 'Slow Burn' and on 'Everything Will Be Alright', I was really trying to do a 'Heathen'-style song.''
