On October 21, 2004, NME reported on the latest band Elton has taken under his wing.
They are The Killers, who count David Bowie among their influences and fans.
They began much like Elton and Bernie Taupin, though. Singer/pianist Brandon Flowers responded to an advert, placed by guitarist Dave Keuning.
Since they are Vegas-based, Elton plans to take them out to dinner between his Red Piano gigs.
