The Killers Ronnie Vannucci Jr. and Prince Harry

The Run For Cover drummer has opened up about his 10 year relationship with the royal.

The Killers Ronnie Vannucci Jr. has complimented Prince Harry's kissing technique.

Speaking in the latest issue of 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."

Meanwhile, The Killers played a show at London's O2 Brixton Academy this week, and had very special guest on stage.

Woody Harrelson joined the Las Vegas rockers on stage during their encore, and gave a monologue ahead of their song, The Calling, which is the ninth track on their forthcoming album.
