Justin sheds light on Bono row rumours

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Glam rocker Justin Hawkins has dismissed reports of an ongoing rift with Bono over vocals on a charity single.

According to recent reports, the Darkness' flamboyant frontman is still furious that Bono usurped his line in last year's Band Aid single Do They Know It's Christmas.

What a crowd it was: red in the face, swilling constantly, pulling faces for the camera. And that was just Justin Hawkins, lead singer of the band the Darkness, who the cameras picked out joining in the singalong to the "doo-dooby-doo-doo" tune played between sets.

Hawkins might be that rarity among sports enthusiasts - a celebrity darts fan - but he clearly has the knack of being in the right place at the right time.

When British rockers, the Darkness, first appeared on the music scene in 2003, they were accused of sounding a lot like Queen (the incredible original, not the present pale incarnation); the English band's sophomore release, One Way Ticket to Hell… and Back, has them convicted of this offense again.

11. Y2J says nothing compares with the voice of Chris Cornell who's a tremendous belter & great singer. He then says another tremendous belter The Darkness' Justin Hawkins & says their new record's getting mixed reviews. He says "1 Way Ticket To Hell & Back" came out a month ago, but says that's enough time for him to include it on his list of "The Best Records of 2006" because he digs Hawkins' voice & digs what they've done. He says he digs the fact that they've worked with Roy Thomas Baker to get that Queen sound & as a result it was a success. He says he really digs the band & hopes people will get into them more & says he knows they'll be doing an arena tour in the USA this year & he's excited.

Y2J says he'll put on his catsuit, his furry boa & scream his way to the stars. He says this is the year 2006 & it's the year of the Rock Of Jericho. He says he'll be back next week & says 1 hour's never long enough & says 2 hours is upcoming. He says he finished, over, gone, done & out & says for the year 2006, he says Happy New Year & to the best of all of you. He says may all your dreams come true & may you have a sip of tea in an English country garden with Hawkins & The Darkness.

12. Ends the show with The Darkness' "English Country Garden".
