Musician. Inspired at a young age after hearing a tape of Stan Getz, he took up the saxophone while attending Chapparrel High School in Las Vegas. It was there than he met The Killers' future bass player, Mark Stoermer, while playing together in the school's jazz band. He worked as a fashion model, most notably for Tommy Hilfiger, and appeared in the video of Sting's "Desert Rose." He attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he earned a bachelor's degree in film. In 2006, Stoermer invited him to record saxophone tracks for "Sam's Town," the band's critically acclaimed sophomore effort. The album was a smash, hitting number one on the Billboard's Top 200 Album's chart and selling over five million copies to date. Now an integral part of the band's sound, he subsequently joined the band on tour to support the album. He returned to the studio for The Killers' third album, "Day and Age," and again hit the road with the band. When the band went on an extended hiatus, he took a job as the night life marketing manager for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The Killers were putting the finishing touches on their fourth album, "Battle Born," when he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. (bio by: Miracle Mile Tim)
