I guess I'm out of the loop because I've no idea who 'The Killers' are... however, the guy in this picture bares a striking resemblance - clothes, mustache, fist in the air - to someone we all know and love. Yes? No?

Just who is this guy?

That's musician Brandon Flowers of the band The Killers as he performed on MTV's 'Total Request Live', Tuesday, September 26, 2006, in New York. It seems that the picture was taken by a photographer from the Associated Press - Paul Hawthorne. Other than that, I've no idea.

Thanks so much. That clarifies everything.

Yeah, he does. Apparently that's the extent of the similarities between them - unless you count this guy's sexual ambiguity.

Ah, well. I thought I found something interesting. I guess I didn't.

I bloody adore The Killers. Brandon Flowers (love the name) is fabulous, although his recent live performances have let him down because of his throat problems.
Himself and the rest of the band did adopt the image of 'having abit of facial hair'. But i only just realised how his style has captured Freddies slightly. The moustache, his actions and the jacket aswell.
He doesn't usually 'follow' another stars style. He's made up his own. But, yes, there he looks weirdly like Freddie (although i still think Freddie is better looking)
