All About Darren
Darren Stanley Hayes was born in Brisbane, Australia on May 8th, 1972 to Robert and June Hayes. He was the youngest of 3, with an older sister named Tracy and an older brother named Paul.
He knew his whole life he wanted to go into singing, and his early musical influences were Prince, Fleetwood mac and Diana Ross. The first album he ever bought was Micheal Jackson's Thriller which he ironically bought at the same store as Daniel before they even knew each other. Currently he loves U2, Sarah McLachlan, and Madonna.
He attended Mabel Park Infants and Mabel Park High schools in Logan City, and discribes himself as a nerd in school. This all changed for him when his talent was realized. He was planning on going on with his education, but after about a year at the university he met Daniel and his focus changed. While in College Darren married to his high school sweetheart, Colby Taylor (Although, they are currently Seperated).
His favorite book is Anne Rice's Vampire Novels, which inspired the name of the group. His favorite movie is Star Wars, the number one being The Empire Strikes Back. He used to have a collection of Star Wars toys, but at age 13 he decided he was too old for them and sold them. Now he is trying to recollect everthing.
An interesting embarrassing moment of Darren's occurred once when he was dining at a Thai restaurant with Daniel. He had to use the bathroom, and afterward began walking back confidently when he accidentally walked right into a plate glass window. The entire restaurant witnessed it and now he is known as that guy from SAVAGE GARDEN who walked into the window (I wonder if his lip balm imprint still remains?).
