A Conversation with The Darkness

Justin Hawkins and Rufus Taylor explain why The Darkness's music is blues at its core, and which band they think is the "Taco Bell" of rock

In this exclusive Q&A, Consequence of Sound staffer/Masterpiece Reviews host Nick Freed sits down with Justin Hawkins and Rufus Taylor of The Darkness prior to the band’s recent show at Chicago’s House of Blues.

Hawkins discusses his love for blues music and why he feels the music of The Darkness is blues at its core. He also talks about why interviews should be the place for bands to moan and groan about life, and calls out the band Disturbed for being the “Taco Bell” of music.
