So after not caring for this album much, now it's one of my favorites of the year.

I gave in. I like it.

I have an online friend that lives in Las Vegas, and her brother has been close friends with Ronnie for years. She knows that my son is a fan, so her brother bought Sam's Town for Ronnie to autograph (then my friend would mail it to us). But when her brother told Ronnie a bit about my son David (he has cystic fibrosis), Ronnie said that he had something better than a cd to sign. He autographed a 12" vinyl...it's awesome! He wrote "May the rock heal you little brother" and he drew a little snare drum. And on the back he wrote "Play it loud, real loud!" When Sarah gets a chance, I'll have her post a picture of it. Oh, I almost forgot the best part! Ronnie told my friend's brother that he wants to meet David the next time they're in NYC! How cool is that!? We had fun at their concert this past October, and we're looking forward to the just announced 4/28/07 concert. My kids requested GA this time. OK, they're no U2, that's for sure, but we did immensely enjoy ourselves. And if we do get backstage to meet Ronnie, I have NO IDEA what we would say! With U2 on the otherhand, we could talk for hours!

There are three good songs on Sam's Town.

Sam's Town
When You Were Young
Bones

And they'll probably all end up being singles eventually.

Hot Fuss is still awesome.

Same. I thought I liked it all when I first listened almost a month ago but I just like a few songs overall.

I heard Bones in the local record store today.

It helps me to forget that the video for the song is absolute crap.

Hooray for walking distance. I'm seeing TV on the Radio the week before that too.

Looks like I'll be seeing the Killers after all.

I'll be on the lookout. A great opening act could make the Camden show a possibility for me.

you have to be a member of the Killers fan club. It's called The Victims and it costs about 25 bucks. It is not a password deal its a link to the page with the dates and then there will be a buy tickets link next to the date you want. Members are limited to 2 tickets per person...

Hopefully someone will help ya on that.. good luck.
