Ex-Darkness star returns to stage

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Former Darkness singer Justin Hawkins has made his live comeback, unveiling his new band Hot Leg two years after suffering a drug-induced breakdown.

Wearing skin-tight tiger-print trousers, the flamboyant frontman returned to the high-octane, high-camp rock with which he made his name.

It was his first gig since leaving The Darkness, who won three Brit Awards in 2004 and scored five UK top 10 hits.

It’s Thursday, and we here at Mirror.co.uk’s Showbiz Towers have been thinking about historical moments in musical history, as one is wont to do.

Granted, we weren’t at the Manchester Free Trade Hall in 1966 to see Bob Dylan called a Judas, nor were we there to see the Sex Pistols in 1976 and we didn’t bother going to see the Stone Roses at Spike Island in 1990.

However, we were there when Richey from the Manic Street Preachers carved ‘4 Real’ into his arm in 1991 (and took him to hospital afterwards), we did see Nirvana’s last ever UK gig at Reading Festival in 1992 - and last night, we were privileged to be at the first ever Hot Leg gig.

Ex-Darkness star makes dreams comes true

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Many children dream of becoming a pop star and eagerly look forward to the day when they cut their first disc.

And yesterday, a special group of youngsters and their families had the chance to make that dream come true - thanks to the generosity of former Darkness band member Dan Hawkins and Norfolk-based record producer Nick Brine.

All of the families receive care and support at East Anglia's Children's Hospices at Quidenham and Ipswich, and they were thrilled at the invitation to create their own CD version of the popular McFly Track “It's All About You” at the world-class recording studio at Hawkins' farm, near Wymondham.

It was a day filled with joy and laughter for the children, parents, and hospice staff, as they made music together - following in the footsteps of acclaimed groups like The Darkness, the Arctic Monkeys, KT Tunstall and Hawkins' current band the Stone Gods, who also use the studio.

Bethany Moorhouse, 11, of East Harling, lost her brother Jacob last year. He was a patient at the Quidenham hospice, and she and her family continue to receive bereavement support from the charity's team.
