The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has hit out former BEACH BOY BRIAN WILSON for hiding behind a haze of drugs to appear more creative.

And the MR BRIGHTSIDE singer, 23, refuses to go down the same stimulant-addled route as Wilson, because he fears drugs turned the singer into a self-obsessed egomaniac.

He fumes, "It bothers me that I'd be more credible to certain people if I had a drug problem.

"Why? That's bulls**t. I'm not interested in drugs because I've seen what they can do.

"Take Brian Wilson. I don't want to be like him.

"What does it matter today that he wrote GOOD VIBRATIONS? The man goes round talking about himself."
