Justin Hawkins

Justin David Hawkins is an English musician, singer, songwriter and YouTube personality best known for being the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Darkness. Heavily influenced by rock bands of the 1970s and 1980s (particularly Queen, Aerosmith, Def Leppard and AC/DC), Hawkins is noted for his falsetto singing voice and flamboyant on-stage persona. He was also the lead singer and guitarist for the band Hot Leg, formed in 2008 and now on hiatus. His falsetto voice has been described as operatic and very similar to that of Queen's Freddie Mercury.
