Duran Duran News – 12/8 to 12/14

This week was an interesting one in terms of Duran Duran news.  While I can’t say it was quiet, did it contain a lot actual news or was it  mostly rumor?  Read on and see what you think.

John Taylor at the House of Commons

Duranduran.com reported that John Taylor visited the House of Commons (the UK equivalent to the US House of Representatives) to present a report on Addiction created by the Centre of Social Justice.  From the press release and what I read, it offers many actions that the UK government could take to work on addiction throughout the country.  Good for John for continuing his work in this area!

 December Giveaways

According to DuranDuranMusic.com, there was a winner of week one of the fan community’s giveaway, which was a signed cd.  The lucky winner was Kathy Ponder.  Congrats go out to Kathy!  Last week, they were giving away 3 2015 calendars.  This week, they are giving away three signed copies of John’s autobiography, In the Pleasure Groove.

Katy Kafe

The end of the year Katy Kafes have started!  This past week, Roger visited the Kafe.  Rhonda covered the highlights and her reaction here.

Ask Katy

There was a new Ask Katy question this week.  The focus was on Denis O’Regan’s book of photographs, Careless Memories.  We, of course, have talked about this book many times, which you can read here and here.

Gavin Elder

Maybe you are someone like me who likes to find out about the team behind the scenes working with Duran Duran.  Perhaps, you like the visual aspect of the band.  If so, then I definitely recommend watching this video on Gavin Elder, the film maker who has been working with Duran since, basically, the reunion shows.

 More Studio Work

Duran Duran’s Facebook posted a new picture from the studio this week.  John Taylor also posted some new pictures on Instagram this week, including one of him in a Santa hat.  Merry Christmas, indeed.

Studio December 2014

I think that was about it.  Yes, there were rumors.  We covered those through the week.  Until next week…
