Well, before I even knew who The Darkness were (well, apart from their name in a caption or something) I saw a photo of Hawkins. And the first thing that came to mind was: John Deacon, Bohemian Rhapsody. He was wearing this white outfit, looked almost identical to the one Deacy wore in the Bo Rhap video. His hair looked the same (same length too), similar features (at first glance) and pallour...I honestly thought for a little bit that that was Queen and not some other band.

Which was annoying, since I couldn't help but thinking that whoever this guy was, he was trying really hard to look like Queen.

Anyway, that little thing aside, I think it's good that Queen has been an influence for modern bands. There are countless fantastic bands and artists whom they have influenced. So I don't think The Darkness ought to feature high up on the list of people whom Queen have influenced. It's just that they make their Queen influence so overt.

And also excuse my terrible typos above, I typed that second "oops" post in a rush.
