<strong>The frontman of The Killers, Brandon Flowers has admitted there's a huge gap between the two supergroups, U2 and Coldplay, compared with other rock stars of the current musical generation and thinks the band chemistry, along with history is the main reason for the phenomenal success of the two bands.</strong>



Brandon Flowers, who is on the verge of releasing his second solo album, the follow up to 2010's <em>Flamingo</em>, feels like The Killers do not possess the drive or chemistry to match U2 or Coldplay.

An excerpt from Brandon's <a href="http://www.nme.com/news/the-killers/79416" title="NME Killers" target="_blank">NME</a> Magazine Interview :



<blockquote><strong>"There's definitely a drive that we're lacking. It takes a lot of work and that's fine, everybody's different, everybody's gonna have their own road that they go down. Other than Coldplay I'm not sure anybody's made the dent that U2 were able to make. They were so much a part of the landscape and the timing of when they were coming out.



"It's changed so much now; there's so much music out there and so much noise to compete with, it's strange times. So sometimes it's frustrating with four different people and four different personalities in this band; we don't have that whole history that U2 have of these four young kids that knew each other and grew up in the same town."</strong></blockquote>
