  • Duran Duran is on Behind The Music tonight

    I'm watching it now. Looks like it was recorded a few years back as Taylor is tearing up the guitar. This would have been around the time I saw them for their "Astronaut" tour.

    Duran Duran is a guilty pleasure for me. I had a great time in the 80's....

          Not that any of them are actually brotherss. Its kind of funny that one of their inspirations, Japan, had a pair of actual brothers who took different stage names, David Sylvian and Steve Jansen, while Duran Duran had 3 members all with the same last name but none of them were related.

            To me, Duran Duran typify everything that was wrong with rock in the 80s -- overly-coiffed and made-up androgenous girly-boys whining about love. To an old punker like me, they were a direct challenge to what I liked in music...

              Too bad I don't get cable. I always liked those guys, and found it interesting that my favorite industrial band, Stabbing Westward, listed them as a major influence.

                They've got some really good songs IMHO. Of course back in the day it would have been hazardous to ever be caught listening to them. I learned to appreciate them much later on in life once I got over myself.

                  I enjoyed Duran Duran and their music videos at the time. Still have some 45s kicking around.

                    I dig what you're saying and felt the same way at the time.

                    Considering what has happened to music in the meantime, they weren't so bad...
