Mormon Brandon Flowers Does Gambling


Brandon Flowers, The Killers


The Killers' frontman is not a big gambler but he admits living with his religion's lifestyle is hard.

Brandon Flowers has risked disappointing his fellow Mormons - the rocker has confessed to enjoying adrenaline-fuelled gambling sprees in his native Las Vegas. The Killers frontman was raised under the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which rejects all forms of gambling as damaging to society.

But the singer admits he struggles to stick to a Mormon lifestyle - especially in his casino-packed hometown. Flowers tells ShortList magazine, "The most I've won is a couple of grand. I'm not a huge gambler personally but the adrenaline of it can draw anybody in so you've got to be careful. I'm still drawn to those neon lights."

The musician has previously admitted he has been mocked for his beliefs because religious rock stars "aren't cool".
