Rolling Stone review of The Killers

A Rolling Stone review of The Killers new CD "Sam's Town" by critic Rob Sheffield.

So this is the Killers in 1980s Springsteen-clone mode: better than Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers; not as good as John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band; about even with Billy Hixx and the New Breed. (That was Rob Lowe's band in St. Elmo's Fire, though the Killers have better fashion sense.)...

...even mentioning a fake band from a lame '80s movie shows this critic's lack of credibility -- and writing prowess.

Conwell, Little Kings reunite94.1 Free FM's Tommy Conwell is reuniting with his old band, the Little Kings - not the Young Rumblers - for a show at 11 p.m. at Grape Street Philadelphia (4100 Main, the former Grape Street Pub) in Manayunk.
Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings are currently playing live at Grape Street Philadelphia. And DJ Caterina is in Dallas....*sigh*.
