Justin Hawkins suffered a hamstring injury after a “David Lee Roth-style split jump” on stage.

The Darkness frontman has been unable to run as he suffered a leg injury trying to copy the former Van Halen frontman and broke a rib after trying to jump onto a balcony at another gig.

He told Classic Rock magazine, “Me and my brother [Dan Hawkins] try to run even when we are on tour.

But I haven’t been able to do anything for a while because I did a David Lee Roth-esque split jump and lifted the hamstring in my left leg.

“It was a great jump, with my legs over my head, but when I landed I was like, ‘Uh-oh.’

“Then we were just on tour in Australia, and I jumped on the balcony.

“It didn’t have the kind of lip I’m used to, so I ended up falling sideways a little bit and broke a rib.

“So right now I’m limping and finding it hard to breathe.

“But other than that I’m in great shape.”

The ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’ rocker’s latest injuries come after he revealed he was rushed to the hospital after suffering chemical burns from a freak accident.

The ‘Masked Singer’ star melted his shorts to his skin after accidentally getting toxic chemicals on himself while cleaning his swimming pool at his home in Switzerland.

In 2020 he said: “There was a problem with the pool, a pump thingy and some chemicals came out.

“I think it was a PH negative chemical to control the acidity of the pool.

“I tried to fix it and touched my legs and my shorts melted on my legs, so then I had to go to the hospital.”
