Darkness set to reunite

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

SPANDEX catsuits could be making a comeback next year because THE DARKNESS are on the verge of reuniting.

The mock rockers have been offered “a small fortune” to hit the road again and are now considering the deal.

They shot to fame in 2003 then split just three years later, torn apart by lead singer JUSTIN HAWKINS’ drug problems and bitter internal feuds.

But now the US entrepreneur behind the Dubai Desert Rocks festival has offered the boys megabucks for a huge American tour in 2009 and a new album. An insider said: “The offer is tabled and being studied by everyone.”

The original line-up JUSTIN, guitarist DAN HAWKINS, bassist FRANKIE POULLAIN and drummer ED GRAHAM will have to hammer out huge differences before they can even think of turning the amps up to eleven again.

The source added: “It’s an absolute mess because so much contributed to the band breaking up. The main thing is that Dan and Justin don’t get along at all. Dan blames Justin for the second album’s failure because of Justin’s drink and drug problems.

Legal

“Plus Dan and Ed are in a legal dispute with the band’s manager over money. They both reckon they’re still owed millions and are determined to get their money. The guys are all saying they would jump at the chance to reunite.

“But a crack team of lawyers and counsellors would be needed to sort out the mess they’re in. And until everything is resolved, there’s no way they could go on tour together.

“If the comeback does happen, it’s sure to be a success because the band went from nothing to superstars overnight and they still have millions of fans around the world.”
