  • 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....

        The Taylor brothers are fantastic.

          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.
              I don't care about your genre, it's all rock 'n roll to me.

              Guitars
              '00 Hamer (not sure the model)
              '96 Peavey Predator
              Yamaha FG-110 Acoustic
              POS Conrad hollow body bass
              Amps
              Line 6 Spider Valve Mk II
              Roland V405

              It's not much, but I'm proud of it.

                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...
