Justin Hawkins Slams "Bitter" Frankie
He's a "useless f*cking loser" apparently...
Justin Hawkins has lashed out at former bandmate Frankie Poullain following his comments in the NME about the band's new single.
Speaking in an interview with MTV News, Hawkins was keen to respond to Frankie's suggestions that the new Darkness single 'One Way Ticket To Hell' is offensive to people struggling to beat drug addictions.
"Frankie always should have been a critic," said Justin. " I said that from the beginning. He's not a musician. He's a critic. The fact that he said that to NME is absolutely typical of him.
"I've outlawed NME speakage and that really hurt him as he's an NME reader, i.e. a useless f*cking loser."
Hawkins, clearly on roll by this point, continued his rant at Frankie: "He definitely liked the song when he was in the band," he said. "He liked the song because that's actually one of the few songs he has any sort of writing credit for."
"He's responsible for one or two of the chords in the verse. He didn't mind contributing then. He absolutely loved it and the minute he gets sacked he's very bitter"
Frankie Poullain was ousted from The Darkness earlier this year.
