Speaking about the long-player, Hawkins said that his favourite song was ‘English Country Garden’ for a very special reason.

Dan Hawkins, guitarist for British band the Darkness, is blunt about his group's career.

"Half the people absolutely cannot bear us and think we're a joke, and the other half absolutely love us and think that we're the saviors of rock and roll," he says.

One half of the spandex clad lads popped in to chat to Ben Jones recently about how they plan to live up to their debut album with their latest album's release, life with their new member Richie Edwards (not of Manic Street Preachers' fame) and Ardvarks?!

The Darkness slam Queen accusations

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

British rockers The Darkness have slammed accusations they worked with Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker in a bid to recreate their heroes' sound.

Guitarist Dan Hawkins is adamant he only picked Baker because they became friends following a chance meeting at a Los Angeles party, not because they wanted to steal the Bohemian Rhapsody legends' sound.

He says: " We're confident and our souls are clean. We're not retroactivists, and we don't steal from people.

"We're heavily influenced, as any other band is, by our peers. Its's just great to work with someone like Roy, and he's got the experience to just do anything."
