Jon Bon Jovi has launched a scathing attack on The Darkness, admitting he “f*cking hates them”.

The Bon Jovi rock superstar compared Justin Hawkins and co to Spinal Tap in a new interview, admitting he has no interest in the band whatsoever.

He explained: “I hate The Darkness. F*ckin’ hate them. I don’t understand it. I know they are huge (in the UK), but I never really got it.

“It’s just Spinal Tap isn’t it? It’s just a lark. I’m not sure they think so, though. I think they take it seriously. They made a little splash in the US but, man…I don’t get it at all.”

Bon Jovi tour the UK this summer, presuming the rebuilt Wembley Stadium is available. The tour calls at:
