No More Darkness for Justin Hawkins
12/10/2006 11:00:00 AM


"I feel like I've lost three years of my life. I'm only just coming to terms with what has happened because I was always off my face. I feel bad for the others. It will be an upheaval. But it's time for me to move on.

It would be damaging to stay on. I'm not blaming the band for my problem. I'm an addict."

It seems he embraced more than just the spandex outfits and falsetto singing from the Seventies - Hawkins admits he has been on a three year cocaine bender costing more than a hundred thousand pounds and is leaving the Darkness as he urgently needs to address his drug addictions. Hawkins has been in rehab since August. At the time, the band insisted they would return to the studio as soon as his stay was over... but unfortuntately that was not to be. Their 2003 debut, Permission to Land did very well but recent releases have not achieved the same success. The remaining band members, Dan Hawkins, Ed Graham and Richie Edwards have announced they will continue, with Edwards to take over as frontman.
