Finally my generation has a Led Zeppelin, classic rock with balls to the walls riffs – The Darkness. They’re from London, and their new album, Permission To Land has gone platinum 4 times in the U.K. They’re getting some major attention here in the States too, with word that their live shows are spectacular. I got the album today and have been really enjoying it. It’s good to hear good old rock and roll that wasn’t born in the 70’s or 80’s. Think classic Led Zeppelin rock infused with hair band 80’s rock, toss in AC/DC’s energy, then mix in some modern influence, and that’s The Darkness. Very good stuff.
