this is where i will talk about new rumours regarding duran duran or any side projects. why not news? cuz! if you want the latest news, go here for duran duran, or here for john taylor!
well, i haven't updated this page in
a long time. andy left the band...again. the only thing that's come
from his camp is (imo) a really weird ranty-type letter from andy. from
duran duran's camp, all we've heard is some quotes from john saying
it's like a divorce, crap like that. who knows, maybe eventually we'll
hear why he actually left.
we're also still waiting for the new
album. who knows if this will be like notorious and they'll leave
andy's guitar bits on there or if they'll remove them all. and who
they'll get to take his place. at the time, there was talk of them
bringing warren back. good god, i hope they don't do this. that skanky
fool needs to be as far away from the band as possible. eww.
it's been a long time since i've written any updates, but that's because not much has been going on in duranland since then. they've toured, and i got to see them again!! yay!! i saw them in atlanta. i may get some of the pictures up soon, but i dunno. they still have NO label, which is outrageous. so, we're still sitting and waiting for them to get signed so hopefully we can get an album. i'm hoping they get signed soon, and that they don't try to go fuck with the album again or anything.
i can say too that some of this stuff down there isn't true anymore. but, i can say i've at least gotten a chance to hear some of the new stuff now (through hearing it in concert, and some demos circulating through the net), and everything's actually pretty great! of all the songs i've heard (i've heard eight in total), i like pretty ones the best. so, hear that guys? i've heard this from several people too...it'd make a great first single! a great way to reintroduce the world to the goodness that is duran duran.
well, it seems as if duran duran are avoiding publicity. i've not seen the band do an actual interview (patty interviewing john doesn't count) since then. they also seem to be purposely keeping the fans in the dark about the new album. as of late, not a word has been spoken on the site about song titles, album titles, the sound...nothing. they should really consider overhauling their site and starting from scratch. the page doesn't take long to load or anything, it's just a little umm...busy. and there's so many things that simply are outdated. let's look at these things a little more closely:
up, duranduran.com is outdated, and they need to hire someone who can
all their time and energy to the website. it seems katy is being a
possessive and doesn't want to hire any fans to help at all. that's a
frustrating. what does she think we're going to do? besides, not
who works somewhere has met their boss. a duranduran.com webmaster
be just that for years and have never once met a single member of the
that'd be fine with me. just because we'd expect to work for the band,
doesn't mean we expect to practically live with them. or maybe that's
