i dont get the darkness- theyre ok and all i like them for them
but whats all this talk how they think they sound SOOO much like Queen even Brian told them off when they were saying that. i dont get it does anyone else think they sound like Queen?
i don't fink they are as Queen-sounding as is sometimes made out - they remind me more of AC/DC than Queen, to be honest. However, there are definately some glimpses of Queenisms - such as the beginning of 'Best Of Me' (b-side to Get Your Hands Off My Woman), which isn't entirely different to the opening riff (not Brian's stair-climbing, but after) of Tie Your Mother Down.
mind you, this is without having heard the new album, which is supposedly more Queen-sounding than the first...

And when is Brian supposed to have told them off? The Darkness do not exactly go around saying they sound like Queen now do they. They say they are heavily influenced by Queen, and Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC etc yes, but never that they try to sound like them. They also said that working with Roy Thomas Baker was great, and in Queen's old studio etc. But never what you accuse them of.
It's only the press and people who hate them for no reason who use these things as an excuse.
