So they say it’s your birthday.

For those of you who don’t know Warren, he is loud, proud, plugged in and switched on. He’s an artist with extraordinary dedication and conviction.

Warren first played with Duran Duran in 1986, when he featured on one of the two guitar breaks on the track “American Science.” From this point onwards, he remained with band until 2002.

During our treasured time together, he brought a completely new musical style and energy to our sound. We created masses of music together and we laughed a lot too. We wrote and recorded the Wedding Album in Warren’s living room…

Concorde regularly flew overhead during vocal takes. We were still five years away from the Internet becoming more widely available.

Somehow it doesn’t feel so long ago but you never think to count every moon.

In 1997 Warren and I made a record together under the name TV Mania, it was all done in the spare time we had during the recording sessions for the Medazzaland album. We finally released it seventeen years later – time doesn’t matter as long as you do something worthwhile with it.

Todayis Warren’s birthday, and he is in Los Angeles about to release his new album, . I am in London in a recording studio making some new music with the Bloom Twins. I found a little time in between the sessions…

Warren,

I had no idea you were born on the same day as Jim Morrison, but I was aware that it was the date John Lennon died.

Happy birthday my dear friend, I made this musical sketch for you, it’s called SIXTY BARS, make sure you count them.


SIXTY BARS by Nick Rhodes

[[Very special thanks to Josh Blair who created the track with me and the Bloom Twins for their vocal contribution.]]

Love & respect,

Nick
