The Darkness Star Damages Hand In Fight

THE DARKNESS frontman JUSTIN HAWKINS has seriously damaged his hand after smashing it through a window during a dramatic alcohol-fuelled fight.

The rocker, 29, stumbled into a stained glass window after being punched in the face by a mystery man and was rushed to the Princess Grace Hospital in London, where doctors battled for hours to repair severed tendons.

The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE star faces months unable to play the guitar and may need to employ a stand-in guitarist for 11 dates on the band's sell-out winter tour in the UK starting on 24 November (04).

A source says, "Justin's being in agony since it happened and just feels angry that his fans could be let down.

"He was kept in overnight while the hand was worked by an orthopedic surgeon and is under strict orders to look after himself now.

"Justin is praying he'll be able to pick his guitar up again soon."
