Duran Duran Call Out The Killers, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand and More
"The Killers. Bloc Party. Franz Ferdinand," the singer said. "The one that sounds the most like Duran Duran is a song by Reverend and The Makers called 'Heavyweight Champion of the World.' I really thought it was us!"
Drummer Roger Taylor continued the thought: "The Bravery. That's the one where I thought, 'Wow, that's a bit close…' And Reverend and The Makers, like Simon said. Actually The Dandy Warhols [who would later be produced by Nick Rhodes], first time I saw them on Top of the Pops I thought, 'Wow, very Duran-ish.'" more on this story
