The Killers Are Alcoholics



OCTOBER 11--In the world of the Killers, nothing says Tuesday like Jack Daniels and gin. Except, of course, Thursday and Saturday. Following in the footsteps of Sheryl Crow, the Las Vegas rockers order their dressing room booze on a strict daily schedule, according to their 2006 tour rider, a copy of which you'll find below. For example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are reserved for Maker's Mark whiskey and Absolut vodka. And Sunday is exclusively the province of tequila and Jameson Irish Whiskey. Well, maybe not exclusively considering the standard 96 beers, 24 cans of cider, and two bottles of red wine the band has waiting for them backstage prior to every concert. As with most bands, the Killers's demands have increased in proportion with their record sales. Two years ago, the band's rider (dated July 2004) sought "Cheddar cheese enough for 6 people." Now they need "Brie or Camembert." On the booze front, the older rider requires a single liter of Jack Daniels and an unspecified amount of vodka. But as for the 2004 request for "personal masseuses," we're guessing that was a joke on the part of Brandon Flowers and his associates.

I love the star gluttony! This might also explain the crap they call a second album.
