I don`t know why I`m coming to terms with this right now, but in the last few months...I get asked about it a lot. If I were Catholic, no one would bat an eye. ...People look at me like I`m an alien when they ask about Mormonism. It`s there in my music. It`s always been there. It`s obviously, it`s, um, it`s unavoidable.
People are coming together, as a family, because our brothers and sisters in Africa need our help, so let`s change their worlds. - Live 8 (2005).
(So it`s not a stretch for Flowers and his band mates to wear makeup and pressed suits.) It`s part of the show, ... Vegas is about the show.
When I was younger I was chubby. It gave me a terrible sense of self-image, and I guess I carry that around with me still.
Move to America! (answering a Canadian fan`s question how to "survive" high school)
I have never done illegal drugs in my whole life. Not even a drag of a joint.
I`m allowed to think that it (Sam`s Town) is the best album in twenty years, but I`ll have my opinion and other people are going to have theirs.
Well, we are under the universal umbrella, as they say. - When asked if he was surprised by the Killers` worldwide popularity.
I guarantee I am better than anyone who does drugs.
I think rock music is getting better. The best (selling) music has been hip-hop for quite a while. So those guys are making the money and making the videos.
I just think it`s the whipped cream... on top. The Killers are the pie and I guess (my) looks are the cherry.
Thinking of becoming an entrepreneur, I would love to rent the World of Coca Cola Museum"."
I think we are the cleanest band in the world, and we are also the busiest. I think these two things go together.
I`ve always had this thing about it not really mattering where you`re from, because there`s always been this big cloud over America saying you have to live in LA or you have to live in New York to make it. I always knew it didn`t matter as long as you had the songs.
Arm wrestling with scorpions.
This song is the last song we`re playing in America, but we`ll be back.
When you grow up in that world, entertainment gets in your blood, ... The flashiness and the glamour catch your attention.
When you look at America and see a big hamburger, or whatever it is that you see, they definitely took a bite out of it. (Referring to the Pet Shop Boys)
We want to be important and to last.
I don`t know. My mom would say it`s because they are jealous,
Music makes my blood flow. I don`t know anyone who doesn`t have a favorite song. I just want to be the messenger.
I thought we were going to win best rock video, but you just can`t beat those Green Day people.
Controversy is never a bad thing.
You don`t have to be a poet to say something profound. (When asked what his favorite quote was)
America is still getting used to the word gay," and when you`ve got a band that`s seen as this gay thing, instantly there`s going to be a wall that`s going to get put up." (On the controversy surrounding the Pet Shop Boys)
I grew up loving a lot of English bands, ... That has a huge effect on you. If I was listening to hip-hop as opposed to Morrissey when I was 13, I would probably be a very different musician. But that`s what I was drawn to when I was growing up.
I am a self-confessed cocaholic.
It is hard to stay normal in Vegas.
