American rocker Jon Bon Jovi has launched a scathing attack on The Darkness, likening the British band to spoof group Spinal Tap. The BON JOVI frontman, 43, is amazed The Darkness take themselves seriously as rockers, because he thought they were a fake glam rock band. He says, "I hate The Darkness. F**kin' hate 'em. "I don't understand it. I know they are huge (in the UK), but I never really got it. "It's just Spinal Tap isn't it? It's just a lark. I'm not sure they think so, though. I think they take it seriously. They made a little splash in the US but, man... I don't get it at all."

I think than Bon Jovi were glam-rock at their begginings, in their dress style, so in case he had said that "he thought they were a fake glam rock band" as a bad thing... well, he must take a look at his old photo album XDI read about the Spinal Tap comparations in other places, and I don't mind. The people that say that kind of things about The Darkness maybe haven't heard their music. They're good musicians.

Who writes this crap. Jon is way to polite to say anything like that. Bon Jovi has come a long way and rocked for over 20 years. Has absolutely nothing to be jealous of. Anyway he is way to busy to notice little things like little known brittish bands.
