Ryan Adams has sparked a war of words with The Killers - insisting he couldn't watch one of their concerts without walking out.
The rocker has blasted the Mr Brightside hitmakers as a Las Vegas novelty act who are only in a band to be famous.
He says, "Fame is an unnatural construct and those who go in search of it are the least likely to find it. I mean, really, does anyone want to sit through a show by The Killers? What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unfortunately with the exception of The Killers."
