Someone mentioned Robert Smith of The Cure. I bought The Killers' CD, Sam's Town. It was cheap and I liked the single, "Read My Mind". I played it 1ce and never again, not the 1st time I've bought an album on the strength of a single and been disappointed. There are spots on that album where Brandon Flowers sounds like Robert Smith and there are songs that sound like failed attempts at ripping off The Cure.
Robert Smith did some work with Siouxsie And The Banshees early in his career, that I would like to hear.
