The Killers Bassists Discussed About Romney Liking the Group

In a recent interview, The Killers who discussed about the news of Republican presidential candidate being a fan of the band in an interview with Parade Magazine.

Killers bassist Mark Stoerner says, "Anyone's allowed to like us. If it's just about music, I guess it's not a negative thing." Stoerner also added, "He's, I guess, a guy and he listens to music and happens to like us. That's fine."

Stoerner also talked about playing at the White House if Romney were to be elected president and the band was invited to play there, "We'd have to cross that bridge when we come to it. We're not really a political band. And we don't necessarily have all the same views, but none of us are very politically active anyway. I guess we would be open to it, depending on if and when it happens and what it was about."

The Killers Look Forward To Elton!!!

The Killers new album is inspired by Sir Elton John's hits.

Bernie Taupin songwriting partner had been recently met by group's frontman Brandon Flowers to took some advise from him on creating "epic" tracks.

Brandon told NME magazine: "There's a very iconic picture of the first Miss Atomic Bomb. A mushroom cloud-shaped bathing suit is covering her breasts. It's a beautiful picture of this woman in the desert. I think she's still alive.
"I met Bernie Taupin for the first time and I felt like he was giving me a little bit of advice. He didn't say much to me, just asked, 'Do you like titles?' And I started thinking about Elton John songs, and found out Bernie wrote the titles first. Like 'Mona Lisa and the Mad Hatter' or 'Candle in the Wind', it's already epic.

"'Miss Atomic Bomb', when that was rattling in the brain, it's so strong. I tied it into 'Mr. Brightside' so that was very easy for me to write."

Brandon is amazed the group's breakthrough hit 'Mr. Brightside' is now 10 years old but he still enjoys performing the track.

He said: "I can't believe it's been 10 years. I still get just as excited as I did before."
