Apparently Saturday was Duran Duran Appreciation Day. Who knew (or cared)? Well, besides Vicki, who sent me the link.
Incredible that a band formed in 1978 still has a day dedicated to it… I guess it’s a time for reflection: where we have been, where we are now, and where we are heading. All questions that are open to debate, depending on which perspective you are coming from, be it fan, a critic or a member of the band.
And where are we at as I write this? Pretty well right in the middle of our 14th album, working a day at a time towards what we all feel will be a great record, very unlike the last and probably totally unlike the next, but one which will perfectly capture a moment in time that is located approximately 35 years after the formation of Duran Duran. And of course, what we must always remember is that the band would not be here, in any shape or form, without our loyal legion of ‘Duranies’ that still continue to inhabit Planet Earth.
So… thank you and here’s to another DD Appreciation Day! – Roger
I cannot believe I missed this; especially after I had my Members Only jacket and Z Cavaricci pants laid out!
