The Killers

Brandon flowers story


Born on June 21, 1981 in Las Vegas, Brandon Richard Flowers is the youngest of six children. Having grown up in the small town of Nephi, Utah, his best chances of getting into music were the cassettes given to him by his older brother, Shane. However, during Brandon's junior year in high school, the Flowers family returned to Las Vegas. While playing in various keyboard bands as side hobbies (most notably the failed band Blush Response), Brandon worked as a bellhop at the Gold Coast and Caesar's Palace hotels. In 2002, abandoned by Blush Response, Brandon attended an Oasis concert and was inspired to dedicate his musical career to a full-fledged rock band. Later that year, he responded to a scouting ad submitted to a local Vegas newspaper by Dave Keuning and the two began writing songs almost immediately. Enter Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci, long-time admirers of Brandon and Dave's early efforts, who struck up a friendship with the aspiring rockers and completed the musical quartet that brought new-found glory home to Las Vegas: the Killers. The rest, as they say, is history...

Flowers married his longtime girlfriend Tana Mundkowsky on August 2, 2005 on the island of O'ahu in Hawaii.Brandon and his wife have three sons, Ammon (named after a Book of Mormon prophet), born July 14, 2007, Gunnar, born July 28, 2009, and Henry, born March 6, 2011.
Flowers' mother, Jean Flowers, died on February 11, 2010, after a two-year battle with brain cancer. She was 64.
Flowers is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
