Chart stars take new cartoon roles

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Pop star Jamelia and reformed cocaine addict Justin Hawkins are voicing the singing parts in a new BBC One children's cartoon.

Hawkins, 32, former frontman of glam rock band The Darkness, sings and plays guitar for the character of Kurtz in the CBBC show. His cartoon alter-ego is a guitar-wielding frontman of an evil band, Mantyz.

Stone Gods come out from The Darkness

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

THEY were Suffolk's most successful ever rock band but, when lead singer Justin Hawkins quit The Darkness, the remaining members admitted they were "staring premature retirement in the face".

The Lowestoft group sold more than a million copies of their debut album, won a string of awards and toured the world, but Hawkins' departure - blaming a drug habit that had cost him £150,000 over three years - appeared to signal the end for the rockers.

A GUITAR made for chart-topping glam rocker Justin Hawkins will help raise money for bone cancer research.

The £7,500 Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar has been donated by Jonny Appleton who won it in a competition.

Jonny’s close pal, Adam Panther, from Ormskirk, died from bone cancer in May.

Hi guys

Sorry I haven't been around so much. I'll try and get this site up and running again but haven't had much time.

Hope you're all happy about The Darkness reuniting! I've been to the show in Shepherd's Bush and will hopefully will have less trouble updating the FlamingWhopper's Youtube Channel at some point.
