The Darkness star returns

July 2, 2008

FORMER DARKNESS frontman JUSTIN HAWKINS is gearing up to launch a fresh chart assault with new band HOT LEG.

The rocker with a fondness for Lycra catsuits is in Los Angeles mastering their debut album ready for release later this year.

From what I hear you can expect plenty of camp glam rock influences — sound familiar?

The group officially launches in August with gigs at London’s Proud Gallery, Birmingham’s Barfly, Manchester’s Roadhouse and Glasgow’s King Tuts.

I hope this latest comeback is more successful than his bid to represent the UK at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Then again, he’s never worried about making a fool of himself.

On Monday he donned tight yellow leggings to perform BON JOVI’s You Give Love A Bad Name in an LA club with cult comedy rock band Steel Panther.

Reports he changed the lyrics to I Give Rock A Bad Name are yet to be confirmed.
