The Darkness Go Back To School

Rockers THE DARKNESS turned up unannounced at their old school to open a new music centre on Monday (26JUL04).

Three members of the I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE group - JUSTIN and DAN HAWKINS and ED GRAHAM - have not returned to Kirkley High School, England since leaving in the early 90s and were so delighted by the tour of their old classrooms, they lavished gifts upon the pupils, including Graham's first drum kit and two guitars.

Deputy head mistress HAZEL JOHNSON gushes, "It was absolutely wonderful to see our ex-students who have been so successful. I had a fabulous afternoon talking to them. I haven't seen them since they left. We talked about their lives and how things have moved on."
