''British rockers THE DARKNESS have slammed accusations they worked with QUEEN producer ROY THOMAS BAKER in a bid to recreate their heroes' sound.''
''Guitarist DAN HAWKINS is adamant he only picked Baker because they became friends following a chance meeting at a Los Angeles party, not because they wanted to steal the BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY legends' sound.''
He says, ''We're confident and our souls are clean. We're not retroactivists, and we don't steal from people.''
''We're heavily influenced, as any other band is, by our peers. Its's just great to work with someone like Roy, and he's got the experience to just do anything.''
