Stage View: Justin Hawkins' Rig

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins has returned with new band Hot Leg think his previous band turned up to 11. Last week we caught up with Justin and Hot Leg guitarist wizard Pete Rinaldi for an interview at the Cardiff Barfly. Justin can't praise his new guitar partner enough and you can see the next issue of Guitarist for more on that. But for now here's some pics I took of their gear setup as you can see both Justin and Pete are big Cornford fans.

BTW: Justin's blue/black Les Paul is the 'Black Shuck' named after the opening track on Permission To Land and bearing the mythical dog of terror that is its namesake.

James Allman of Baconmusic conducted an interview with former THE DARKNESS frontman Justin Hawkins on October 17, 2008 prior to a performance by Hawkins' new band HOT LEG at Stoke-on-Trent Sugarmill, UK. Watch the nine-minute chat below.

Justin Hawkins unveiled HOT LEG at a concert in London on August 6. The group played a set of cock-rock numbers, in a similar vein to THE DARKNESS, and covered two songs entitled "The Power Of Love" one by HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS, the other by JENNIFER RUSH, both massive UK hits in 1985. The band then finished with a version of THE DARKNESS' "I Believe In A Thing Called Love".
