Justin Hawkins had vowed in an exclusive interview with The Sun last week that he had quit alcohol as part of a new health and fitness regime. But it appears the lure of a free bar at Thursday night’s Kerrang! Awards was too tempting for The Darkness frontman. “Justin is definitely drinking again,” his bandmate Frankie Poullain told Victoria Newton. “He lasted ages off it. Seven days is a very long time in rock ‘n’ roll. It wouldn’t be right to come to the Kerrangs and not drink. There’s as much booze as you can take — beer, wine, spirits… you name it. Justin’s been enjoying it all.” The full story at thesun.co.uk has since been archived.
