Back from The Darkness

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

WHEN Justin Hawkins plays at Manchester's Roadhouse next month, it will be the eve of an important anniversary.

"I will have been clean and sober for two years on August 9," he says. "Generally people do remember the date because it's a one-day-at-a-time thing."

Hawkins addressed his drink and drug problems in 2006, then promptly announced he would quit The Darkness, the flamboyant and smile-inducing pomp-rockers.
