    Kings Of Leon's latest album was mediocre. Their other albums have been decent but there have been many better Rock albums this decade than KOL! What did Killers win in NME anyway in all? And did MGMT win best track award, they better had with Time To Pretend :woo:

    Miss Brightide, don't think i said anything, but lucky lucky you!

    Last night was on off the best nights of my life.
    The gig was awesome, its something i will never forget and I would love to see them play somewhere in the US next!!
    I have supported them from the start and was just so over-the-moon to finally see them live. Im seeing Coldplay at Wembley in September but that's gonna have to go some to get close to last night. I thought it was I.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E!!!

    Everyone's been talking about the "This song is about Sex!", but we never got that! We got a little story about why he doesn't talk much! I filmed it!

    Noooo I met Brandon before the Warchild gig last Wednesday - I wrote a whole story on it a few pages back lol! Posted loads of pics but I thought I'd take some off so thats why it's gone shorter. Left the most important ones on though

    And then I met Ronnie properly at Radio One and got a quick wave from Brandon! Ah I still need to post this little story...ok so here I go T Kay!

    My friend and I go university 5 minutes away from Radio One studios, so we were listening to the radio and thought lets just go down there! So we did, and got there, found awaiting papparazzi, then these 2 other fans came along. Brandon and Ronnie arrived with more paps on their tail, and the pap went mad. Brandon was so terrified - those 2 fans asked him for a pic, and he initially said yes, but then papparazzi hounded him and he got scared and ran in. You should have seen him, it was awful! While this was happening, me and my friend saved Ronnie from them cos we covered him and he went in through the other side.

    But we managed to stop and take a pic while the pap harassed Brandon, and I told him to make sure he smiled and he laughed saying something along the lines of how I'm one of the lucky ones to get a smile out of him, he was so sweet! He said lots of stuff I can't quite remember, it happened so fast and said they were late and he asked if we were gonna be outside after to sign my t-shirt and I was like Oooo yeah! So after the interview, more pap and some weird people arrived. Brandon and Ronnie came out, the car pulled up quickly, and Brandon and Ronnie power-walked to the car, almost running. And they ran past the other 2 fans waiting which was a bit unfortunate for them I guess, but then Ronnie remembered about signing my t-shirt and came back to me past all these people :woo: He is amazing, I love him even more now! So while he was signing, we had a very quick chat about seeing them tomorrow (proper gazing into eachother's eyes! He had his glasses, jacket and scarf off now!) and explained to him where I would be sitting for him to throw me the drumsticks which he found hilarious and said he'd try.





    I now own 4 Killer's tshirts lol!
    You are sooo lucky!

    I'm going tomorrow :eek: Can't wait!

    Just seen the songs you put up, I hope they play Bling too and all the usual songs they play. Another song they rarely play that I really really want to see them play is All The Pretty Faces, I love that song.

    I love that line!
    "Bless your body, bless your soul, pray for peace and self control"

    "Lesson learned and the wheels keep turning"

    "I know that we can heal over time"

    My favourite lines from this song! This song sounded amazing live, and Brandon looks sooooooo happy and cheery when he sings this, especially during the lines I posted!

    I'm sure the atmosphere will float up to where you're standing. Hehe. It did when I went to see Muse, and the people around me were miserable (why come? seriously!), but it still was such an amazing atmosphere.

    I'd never heard of Starsailor or that track but it's not bad.

    PS @ all you lucky people who've recently been to see The Killers: I'm actually quite envious. :tongue:

    Saw the Killers last night at the LG arena in Birmingham.
    Was absolutley amazing!!!!!!!!!
    The atmosphere when they played When we were young at the end was awesome.
    And when they went off towards the end for a few minutes before returing the whole crowd started to sing ' I've got soul but i'm not a solider'
    was sooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooood. Also I was so glad they played Bling, Read my mind and This river is wild
