The Killers
frontman Brandon
Flowers
has discussed how Oasis inspired him to become a
“shit-talker” in the early days of the band.

Flowers was in a discussion with Phoebe Bridgers for

Interview Magazine
, which discussed the pair’s time in
lockdown and more.

“I used to be—what would the word be—I was just kind of a
shit,” Flowers revealed during the conversation. “When we first
started, I used to trash talk a lot of people.”

Later in the chat, Bridgers asked: “When you say you used to
talk a lot of shit, what does that mean? Did you talk about other
bands?”

Flowers responded: “Oh, I talked about other bands. I grew up
idolising Oasis, and they wrote great songs, but they were also
just big shit-talkers. For some reason, I thought to gain respect
that was part of the territory.

“And that’s not who I am at all, but there were a few people
I ended up calling and apologising to later on. Then there are
still people that I said things about, and I still carry it with
me. I still need to apologise to them. I did it to John Mayer.”

Expanding on the story of him apologising to Mayer, Flowers
said: “I was at a restaurant in L.A., and he comes and sits at a
table right near us, and you just feel so bad. I walked up to the
table, and he was in the middle of a circle. It wasn’t a square
table—he was in between people, so I couldn’t just talk to
him.

“I just addressed the whole table, and I was like, ‘I said
this about John, and I regret it man, and I’m sorry.’ He was
really gracious about it. The world doesn’t need more
negativity.”

The Killers’ new album ‘Imploding The Mirage’ was
originally scheduled for release on May 29 buthas
since been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic

recently
