Amy Macdonald checked in with her MySpace friends (@amymacdonald) on Friday (August 15), feeling quite tired after performing at the Pukklepop festival in Belgium and watching one of her favorite bands perform afterwards. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
Another reason for me being so tired is that we stuck around all day to watch the Killers. They were on at 1am, but it was definitely worth it. I ended up being awake for 24 hrs yesterday. I had about 4 hours sleep last night. I am a walking zombie.
But again it was all worth it. The Killers were amazing, as usual. I felt so inspired watching them. The last time I saw them perform I wrote ‘Run’ the very next day.
To be honest I haven’t been to many gigs recently, I don’t ever have time, and when I do I get agitated because I just want to be on stage and also a lot of music these days doesn’t really catch my imagination. I hate the way that one artist is successful and then a million clones are released. However I don’t think that will ever happen with The Killers. They are just too good, In my eyes no band will ever be able to recreate that sound. I find Brandon flowers absolutely mesmerizing as a performer.
My absolute dream in life would be to do something with The Killers. They are one of my favorite bands. I think out of a lot of bands and artists around nowadays, very few will still be around in 20 years time. The Killers will definitely be one of them.
