This Wednesday night, January 23, The Darkness will perform at Newport Music Hall in Columbus. One of my favorites from the past 10 years, this UK band writes killer rock in the genres of glam with a dash of hair and arena rock. Great hooks, and even better dual guitar solos. After some inner turmoil, a stint in rehab and a few lost years, they returned stronger than ever last year with a new album entitled "Hot Cakes", and appeared at Rock on the Range 2012. I thought I'd repost my backstage interview with guitarist (and Justin's brother) Dan Hawkins, Bassist Frankie Poullain and Drummer Ed Graham.
