I’m an old dude who was mostly into 70’s prog, jazz fusion and guitar rock (who, rush, frank marino, steve hillage etc…).
The Darkness was one of my guilty pleasure bands. Kind of cross between early Aerosmith with a hint of Sweet, Queen, AC/DC and Rick Derringer mixed in. I was bummed when they broke up.
I just found the album the remaining members put out as Stone Gods, “Silver Spons & Broken Bones”. It was released in 2007. I’m slow like that
Anyhow, if you haven’t heard it and you like The Darkness and/or Velvet Revolver, I think you’ll dig it. Some ify stuff, but some really great tunes too. Still trying to get my hands on Hawkins CD with Hot Leg.
