Famous Ukulele Players - Part 19 - Justin Hawkins

Hot on the heels of my last instalment, the wonderful Adam Wolters of UkeJam got in touch to let me know that Justin Hawkins of the rock band The Darkness, has been known to have a crafty strum.



Adam writes,


"I was playing session bass for a single (yet to emerge ) for Al Murray in Rack studio in London - I was very excited, and took the uke as usual - though they are frowned upon in "proper music" circles quite often  - this Oscar Schmidt ou2 sounds so sweet that it got all over the record.....
I kinda shoved it into JH's hands and was a bit - go on go on .... but he left me dumbstruck when he played it :) so so good."

And here  he is in the studio!
