Singer Brandon Flowers has revealed how he has always had a lot of love for the English singer Elton John, even when he was young. Brandon has told how his siblings used to destroy his parents records but he would make sure that they left Elton John alone.
Flowers explained, “My older brothers and sisters treated my parent's records with total disrespect. They used to sledge down the driveway in the snow on them! I could understand if they were all c**p, but they weren't. The Elton John Greatest Hits album I couldn't bear to see ruined.”
He added, “That set up a real conflict in me, because I got into Elton John just as I heard The Cars and The Smiths for the first time aged 12 or 13. He wasn't necessarily the coolest guy but you couldn't deny the songs were great.” Elton John has also returned the compliment by admitting that Brandon Flowers is in his top five artists.
