Killers singer Brandon Flowers complained to the NME that they aren't as big in America as they are in the U.K. because of... well, bands that are much better than they are (I guess). "Over here, people are so obsessed with Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, those sort of bands, that no one else is allowed to grow." Uh, OK. You didn't say that about Bruce Springsteen, who you totally aped on a recent album. (Unsuccessfully: they sounded more like Meat Loaf, but not as good).

What I want to know is, how does a guy who is clearly influenced by artists like Elton John and The Pet Shop Boys (both of whom collaborated with The Killers on a Christmas single for Project (RED)), Queen and other gay artists, totally brag about being Mormon and never call out the Mormon Church on its homophobia?
