It’s here once again…Duran Duran Appreciation Day, in the year 2013! Incredible that a band formed in 1978 still has a day dedicated to it… I guess it’s a time for reflection: where we have been, where we are now, and where we are heading. All questions that are open to debate, depending on which perspective you are coming from, be it fan, a critic or a member of the band; but one thing this band has always done (as the title of our last album triumphantly declared) is to live and function in the moment, never looking over our shoulder for too long, never over-dwelling on which direction we are heading, but focusing on where we are right now. And where are we at as I write this? Pretty well right in the middle of our 14th album, working a day at a time towards what we all feel will be a great record, very unlike the last and probably totally unlike the next, but one which will perfectly capture a moment in time that is located approximately 35 years after the formation of Duran Duran. And of course, what we must always remember is that the band would not be here, in any shape or form, without our loyal legion of ‘Duranies’ that still continue to inhabit Planet Earth.
So… thank you and here’s to another DD Appreciation Day!
