I think he's really good (obviously) I just love the little anecdotes that he makes up, such as his mother fighting a bear!
What have you heard?

At Rough Trade, Brian talked about a girl he knew who used to drive in her truck, and set off fireworks in the back, which lead nicely into Old White Lincoln.
There could've been a lil more to it than that, but i can't remember..

I have heard him talk about his mum baking a cake for the killers. Or at least thats what I think he said. My memories of Reading are hazy at best. Ir was it a cake for his Birthday. I cant remember.

I like his stories - he needs to not sing so loudly into the mic sometimes tho. And it often sounds like he's been a drinkin?

I remember on Vinyl Collective when Virgil said smthing about their mugs that brian wanted to do a mug rather than a pint glass since he was "more likely to drink a cup of coffee than a pint of beer"
but idk
i mean im sure the guy has drank but i think he tries not too..
thats cool
i mean i drink.. but im to proud of it, and its kinda cool to hav smone rad like brian to look up to who doesnt do that shit.. idk

It was a fork and a spoon fork! Then he pulled a bed off her with his teeth and saved her. He saved all our momma's too.

I think Brian's the only one who doesn't drink beer while on stage.

i wonder if he's strictly cigarettes or if he smokes weed too.
he just seems like he'd be a real fun guy to smoke with.
