We toured with The Killers for a little while, and watching a guy like Brandon Flowers and seeing what a professional he is, he just works. Every day he goes to sound check and is merciless on himself. I don’t know what their schedule is like, but they must do 200 shows a year, day after day after day, and he maintains this incredible enthusiasm, energy, and professionalism. That’s an inspiring thing. There are times when you play show after show, and you take it for granted that that’s what you do with your life, but these guys who have been doing it longer than us at a higher level, I think that’s one of the secrets to their success. And every show seems like a huge deal to them.
