In an emotional and candid interview, the Killers' Dave Keuning tells us he's officially returned to the band after a four-year absence. “I could not ... devote myself to two more years of being gone. I was going crazy.” https://t.co/YRE4aqqLR5— Rolling Stone (@RollingStone) April 23, 2021
Stewie ~allegedly~ called his absence first!
-He left the band in 2017 to spend more time with his family, citing exhaustion. Meanwhile, he was still technically a member of the band.
-He misses playing live shows, but at the same time, could no longer handle the "touring" aspect after 10+ years. Ie, travelling 22 hours a day and being away from home for most of the year. He felt guilty because he was never home to spend time with his son.
-He was annoyed that Ronnie said "it’s been years since he’s been really a productive part of this band"
-COVID brought the band back together and they are already discussing another album
-He doesn't know if Mark will ever come back
