The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers is revelling in the fame the band's success has handed him, but hates the way it interferes with his private life.

While he's happy to capture the world's attention while onstage, the 23-year-old rocker is still reluctant to share his downtime with fans and the media.

Flowers says,"I might be a ham, but I welcome the attention. Right now I'm sucking it all up.

"The downside to all that is that I have to be on guard all the time.

"When they're getting me onstage, that's fine, but outside of that, when you're just doing what you're doing...you know, you walk differently, you carry yourself differently from when you're onstage. That I don't like."
