    Dunno if anyone is a fan on here, but I sure am! Really sad news, wish it wasn't true! Went to see them for my 21st this year. They were class!

    Dan, Richie and Ed have said they will try to carry on without him, but apparently have been dropped by they're record label. Not suprised really though, its not the product Atlantic Records bought, and Justin IS The Darkness!

    Anyway, I apologise if no-one is a fan on here, but its really bugged me hearing this and I just wanted to share my views!!!

    Don't worry dude, you're not alone :)

    I'm a fan of The Darkness and what they stand for too.

    You wouldn't believe just how many times I've played their 2 albums whilst doing the washing up and ironing LOL!!!

    People complain about them, but I see them as a fookin good refreshing change from boy-bands and mindless RnB.

    A refreshing change yes, but singing falsetto over the top of 70's soft rock guitar riffs from Rainbow and the like is hardly groundbreaking.
    Pub band at best. Carry on without him? I don't think so

    There's hardly anything new and ground breaking left for ANY band to do anymore though. Everything in the charts sounds like somebody else, most avenues/styles seem to have been explored,.........that's innevitable.

    There will be no more legends, no more supergroups, and virtually nothing new. Very sad :(

    I'd still rather listen to 70's rock riffs though all the same.

    Rainbow riffs?...............those Hawkins brothers couldn't get NEAR Blackmore's playing ;)

    OK maybe not groundbreaking but there's still some originality left to add to what's been done before.
    Every band is obviously influenced by the past but there's still plenty of scope to fuse 2 good things together and create something original.
    Lyrics for a start, you're not honestly saying theres no good books left to be written?
    If we're talking chart material then I think someone like Pink for example has managed to fuse the spirit of RnB/rap with rock but with decent lyrics. To me that creates something original. Like it or not there's no one else doing anything similar. Gwen Stefani's done some good stuff crossing a whole bunch of different genres, from rap, rock to reggae.
    What I object to is the plain theft that seems to be rampant in the charts these days, with nothing added to make it something new.
    I'd rather be subjected to the Sugababes sampling Gary Newman (which is at least different) than a pale immitation of the Fall from the likes of the bloody Artic Monkeys.
