Brandon Flowers no egomaniac

Brandon Flowers denies he is an "egomaniac" and would be fine with other members of The Killers going solo.

The 'Crossfire' singer - who has recently embarked on a solo career - said it is a misperception he made an album while the rest of the band are on hiatus because he wanted total control, and he will have no problem coming up with material for a new album with his main band, because he has always got "songs cooking".

He told BBC6 Music: "There's a lot of confusion, people think I'm an egomaniac and they don't realise the band are actually really happy that I did this.

"It actually comes from a place of humility really, I need to do this, I can't take two years off. And I always write. At any given time there are songs cooking."

When asked how he'd feel if, for example, guitarist Dave Keuning came and said he had wanted to record his own solo album and was going to take a year to promote it, Brandon replied he'd simply: "Put out another solo album" himself.

Brandon recently played at London's Brixton Academy venue yesterday (19.10.10) where he brought producer Stuart Price, who has worked on both Killers albums and 'Flamingo', Brandon's solo debut. They played Killers track 'Human', 'Only The Young', and Stuart's remix version of 'Mr Brightside'.
