    Yes I saw that and I remembered of you (and that story you had told me)... I don't know what to think to be honest.

    hes a great singer/songwriter and great on the synth/piano/keys but....i just dont think he can do it by himself...

    The Killers are NOT splitting up although many 'fans' are freaking out about it.

    Yep it's funny how people always think an artist is quitting his band just because he decided to go solo.

    well but its always kinda....crap lol i hated Julian Casablancas' solo work, i didnt like Paul Banks aka Julian Plenti's solo work, etc. i could go on.
    even Morrissey isnt good solo, compared to how great The Smiths were....

    I know, we always end up getting a bit disappointed because we usually expect their solo work to be as good as their band one... I see it's not the case though :lol:

    I wonder why they decide to go solo... Do you think it's to proove they're capable of recording an album on their own? :ermm:

    I heard one of his new songs on the radio the other day from his solo project and it was pure rubbish. It sounded totally different than what I'm used to from him and the band, which was dissapointing.
