DD.com’s cameras were lucky enough to grab 30 seconds with Simon for a bit of an album update. Album or song titles? No…very charming frontman? YES!
At the end of each year, the ASK KATY section of the site receives an influx of emails asking if there will be a Duran Duran official calendar coming. To this day it remains a popular item for fans. For those who may not know, the first official calendar was released in winter 1982 via the band’s fan club at the time, and then launched to the public through a small ad campaign in the UK music press.
The next year, the band put out another calendar, and that edition (1983) remains one of the most sought after for collectors today.… Read More
Simon has recently been interviewed for an upcoming ABC Australia TV program celebrating Countdown’s 40th anniversary.
Countdown ran on Australian TV from 1974-1987 and was hosted by Ian “Molly” Meldrum. Molly regularly interviewed Duran Duran, among other artists, and formed a great rapport with the band. The guys sang on Countdown, hosted the show and also attended the Countdown Music & Video Awards.
Duran Duran were beloved members of the Countdown family in the 1980s, and it was especially gratifying since Duran Duran had a #1 album in Australia – and a #1 single in Australia as well – before any where else.… Read More

Every month the Duran Duran Fan Community features a Q&A with someone notable in the Duran Duran community. Last month night life impresario Nick Valentine, who recently published a book called CLUBS, DRUGS AND CANAPES , sat down for an interview. An excerpt can be found below:
1. Were you always interested in entertainment? In the book in mentions you and your brother had a band…
I have been obsessed with music for as long as I can remember and started playing guitar at the age of 12 when “The Streets of London” was my first strummed conquest.
2. How does one become the event planner to the stars as you did
Every job I have ever had I kind of stumbled across, though being an excitement junkie tended to put me in the right place at the right time.… Read More
On March 6th, Roger flew to Zurich to DJ a very special event – the launch of the Swiss edition of L’Officiel Magazine.
“Twas a great night …having such a good time that I ended up spinning well into the early hours, a great event and I love Zurich, lovely crowd, great city! I played the 12″ mix of “The Reflex” around 1am which ‘rocked the room’!”
