Duran Duran reunites
It appears that the lineup that gave the blockbuster 80’s group Duran Duran their most success have decided to regroup. Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor and John Taylor are getting ready to record together for the first time in fifteen years.
Duran Duran exploded onto the music scene in the early 80’s with the help of hit videos on MTV. Duran Duran’s videos helped turn the promotional vehicle into an art form with their slick performances and story lines.
The last recording released featuring the original line-up was the title track for the James Bond adventure “A View to A Kill” in 1985. The band then went on hiatus with members jumping into side projects including Arcadia and the Power Station. Since then the band has continued to record and perform with various lineups.
