i found this on official queenonline.com website:

"HAWKINS WANTS QUEEN JOB
Justin Hawkins of The Darkness has a not-so-secret hankering to front the new Queen tour*. He said: 'I know they have Paul Rodgers who is great but, if he ever had a holiday, I would so like that job. I just love the band.'

*Please note...there is no 'new Queen tour'!"


and this last sentence disturbed me alot :(

I would love to see a collaboration of some sort between Justin, Brian and Roger.

Hawkins has no chance at all.. Brian and Roger are in the studio right now, together with Paul. If there will be a new tour, it will be with Paul. Sorry Justin!

Work together in the future? Bri and Roger are getting old people.. I don't expect them touring till they die!


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

I think justin would have suited them more 15-20 years ago, but now now, they have aged, grown, and matured, and i think paul is a perfect fit for the guys

One of the reasons that Justin quit The Darkness was because of the temptation to use drugs whilst on tour. Touring with Queen in their current state, I would have thought this would be less likely than say 25 years ago when they had the likes of the New Orleans parties.

I'm sure there must be some tour crew roadie job that Justin can apply for. Besides, many roadies spend a lot of times doing dope in the tour bus, so Justin could have a lot of fun doing that.

Oh wait... did he mean a job as a lead singer? Sorry to break this to you Justin, but not in a million fuckin' years.

Now, grab that mop and start cleaning the stage.

Maybe he could sell T-shirts and Programs, work the concession stand...

Regardless, it's a pretty stupid way to apply for the job.

I dont know if anybody agrees with me but if Paul wasnt fronting Queen at the moment I think that Steve Perry (ex journey singer) would have been perfect. What do people think on that? His range is the same as freddie's and he has the same energy and passion in his voice, and at the moment is not in a band!

There is no way that Queen are touring with that muppet hawkins is a waste of space and the darkness are a joke.

I'd like to see them work together, but I cant see him fronting Queen...Id go see it if it happened, but I cant see Brian going for it on anything other than a one off basis.

Id much rather see him back in the Darkness making new music - maybe then Brian can make an appearance ala The Yardbirds, Meat Loaf and a fair few other artists who's albums he's been on.

i agree...i'd LOVE to see him with Queen...there's just something about Paul that doesn't seem right to me, like, he just doesn't fit.


Love is still the answer, take my hand...

Steve Perry can no longer sing. That's why he's no longer in Journey (among other reasons -- Neal Schon and Jonathon Cain can't stand him).

Take a listen to Perry on the last Journey cd with him singing ("Trial By Fire") and his last solo cd ("For The Love Of Strange Medicine") to hear just how bad his singing became.

It's simply incredible that you think that Justin Hawkins can be mentioned in the same sentence as Freddie Mercury when vocal talent is the subject matter.

Are you serious? No, you just can't be.
