The Killers drummer has recalled having a great time watching the Canadian DJ, despite saying the majority of EDM "is sh*t".
The Killers' Ronnie Vannucci has given his verdict on EDM music and recalled the first time he tried MDMA.
In an interview with Spin magazine, the Run drummer praised Erol Alkan as "cooler than Avicii," but said he's not keen on EDM on the whole.
"I’m not hip to DJ culture as much, but I’ve heard some really cool shit," said Van But the majority of it is shit. And it’s bad.”
“We were in Argentina once, Buenos Aires, and we saw Deadmau5,” he says. “And I went in there fully just like, shitty attitude, not ready to enjoy myself. I enjoyed it. It was like a full-on experience.
"It was awesome. It’s not really my bag, but I was there, my dad was there, we were surrounded by a bunch of South American models. Everything was fine.”
“You need to get the whole story,” Flowers butt in. “It was also Ron’s first time experimenting with MDMA.”
“I loved it,” Vannucci chimed in.
Flowers agreed: “He fucking loved it.”

Meanwhile, Vannucci recently opened up about his relationship with Prince Harry, who he called a "great kisser".
Speaking to NME, the drummer has praised the royal, who he describes as "just a dude" he gets along with.
Asked about the reports that he's been jamming with the red-haired Prince, the sticksman joked: "Oh, y'know, he's a great kisser. We became pals 10 years ago. We just get along".
He added: "I knew nothing about the royals, so when I met him he was just a dude. I'm a dude in a band and he's a dude in London."
Asked if Prince Harry's famous naked pool scandal in Vegas was any of his doing, Vannucci Jr. replied: "That was not my fault. I wasn't there for that one."
