Brandon Flowers will never drink again

Brandon Flowers never wants to get drunk again.

The Killers frontman - who is a practising Mormon - doesn't really enjoy drinking alcohol and has no desire to get intoxicated in the future, despite booze being so prevalent in rock 'n' roll.

He said: ''I have been drunk. I haven't drank in five or six years. And I will probably never be drunk again.''

Brandon - who was born and lives in Las Vegas - also doesn't drink coffee as it's against the rules of Mormonism, which is a form of Christianity.

In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, he said: ''There's no doctrine about not drinking Coca-Cola. Coffee is still frowned upon. It's the caffeine. I think people become reliant on coffee. And that can't necessarily be a good thing.''

The 31-year-old musician - who has three children, Ammon, Gunner, and Henry, with his wife Tana - is strict with almost everything that he puts into his body and he has the same breakfast every day as he finds being in a routine ''comforting''.

He explained: ''I have the same thing every day. I find it comforting. I have a banana, but I can never eat the whole banana. And I'll drink a couple of Actimels (healthy yoghurt drink). And some kind of cereal with almond milk. And then after that I have a Coke.''

Brandon was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS Church) - which the vast majority of Mormons are part of.

Mormons have a strict health code that doesn't allow the consumption of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea, and other addictive substances. They also have a strict law of chastity, requiring abstention from sexual relations outside of marriage.
