Duran Duran Appreciation Thread

You know, as in one of the most criminally underrated bands in pop/rock history. Great rythem section(roger/john taylor). Great songwriters.

Discuss..........

I LOVE Duran Duran.

I went to one of their first reunion shows at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas back in July '03.

I was too young for their 80's stuff, but discovered it after finding out about them through Ordinary World and Come Undone in the 90's.

I thought Astronaut was quite good, but I've heard a couple of the new songs and I'm not sure if I like the new direction they are going with Red Carpet Massacre. Its Duran Duran with a Timbaland beat and Justin Timberlake backing vocals

They have a nice long discography. I even like their late 90's efforts Medezzaland and Pop Trash. Definitely some catchy tunes.

I saw them in Toronto when I was 13...they opened for David Bowie! It was a good night, to say the least.

I was a major fan when I was a kid. I thought Simon LeBon was amazing. I also thought I could be just as amazing if I had my very own Simon LeBon jacket...the one he wears in "The Reflex" video. Didn't work out, sadly.

Great pop songs. I'm not a massive fan now, but I still keep my eye on them. They played brilliantly at Live Earth, and the new album should be worth checking out when it's released.

Man, did I LOVE Duran Duran back in their early 80s hey-day. I saw them a couple of years ago when they toured with the original five members, and it was SUCH a blast. I swear, I'd been holding in those screams since I was 12.

I still enjoy their music quite a bit. I'm not a big fan of those middling years, but I thought Astronaut was really pretty darned good.

After that concert a few years ago, I tracked down used copies of all their CDs, even the ones I don't like. What can I say - I'm kind of obsessive compulsive when it comes to my CD collection.

I saw that but I think the show I went to was in April.

And I think it was more recent than '03.
