The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers' Christmas went with a bang back in the early 1990s - when an unfortunate mishap saw the star almost losing an eye. The SOMEBODY TOLD ME singer had an accident with an air gun over the festive season, and was nearly blinded when one of the pellets bounced back and hit him in the face. He says, "I got a BB gun once, it's a gun that shoots little pellets. "It was during the first Gulf War, and my dad brought back pictures of Saddam Hussein for me to shoot at. "I was shooting at one of them and I ran forward to it immediately after I'd fired to see how good a shot I was, but it ricocheted off the shed and came back at me square in the head. "I learnt my lesson. I almost lost my eye that Christmas."
