In a new appearance on Classic Rock Magazine, Justin Hawkins, the guitarist/singer of the British rock band The Darkness, has talked about the albums affected him and revealed that The Razors Edge from AC/DC has changed his life.
“I was 14 or 15 when ‘The Razors Edge’ came out, and I loved it,” he said. “In fact, I would listen to the album and tried to learn the guitar parts.
“Then somebody told me that if I really wanted to hear proper AC/DC, then I had to go back and check out the Bon Scott era. So, that’s what I did, and this has now become my favorite AC/DC album.”
Justin has also revealed a truth about himself and said that he wanted to be a combination of Freddie Mercury and Bon.
“It also changed my approach to everything. From then on, I wanted to be a combination of Bon and Freddie Mercury. To have Freddie’s vocals with Bon’s attitude. And Bon is the reason why I still used a microphone with a cable.
“Because he just looked so cool with it. I tried a radio mike, but it didn’t have the same feeling. For me, when it comes to AC/DC, you cannot better ‘Powerage.’”
