The Kills Beyonce

(Gibson) Alison Mosshart, who splits her time singing with The Kills and with Jack White in The Dead Weather, recently expressed her admiration for superstar Beyonce Knowles. Beyonce also is a big fan of The Kills, so the love runs both ways.

"Her music's awesome!" Mosshart told Spinner.com. "If you listen to 'Single Ladies,' there's definitely a similarity to playground songs, and that was my big inspiration all those playground songs for [The Kills' 2008 record] Midnight Boom. So when I heard "Single Ladies," afterward it was like, 'Oh, she's doing the Midnight Boom! It's similar!"

Mosshart's bandmate in The Kills, Jamie Hince, said that he thinks a Beyonce performance beats most rock shows, these days. "You see all these rock bands and you think they're really it and really happening but they barely move onstage, with their nonchalance and not caring," Hince said. "Go and see Beyonce and Jay-Z and every single second has been taken care of where there's something going on; they put rock bands to shame." more on this story
