THE DARKNESS Asked To Sign Dead Dog

The Irish Examiner is reporting that British rockers THE DARKNESS encountered a strange request from a fan — to sign his grandma's dead dog.

The group's drummer Ed Graham recalls the bizarre request from an admirer — who believed he could obtain a peace of mind with his late estranged grandmother if they signed her stuffed canine.

Graham says: "We were doing a signing and this guy brought a miniature stuffed dog.

"It was his grandmother's. He never got on with his gran — or the dog — then the dog died and she had it stuffed.

"When she died she left him the dog. He said, 'If I get you to sign it, then I might be able to make peace', so I signed its testicles 'E' and 'D', one on each b******."
