Nothing Left to Prove

Once again, the band trumps me.  I had a blog topic all ready for writing, then I come home and get an “Official Duranie Alert” from my writing partner, Amanda. (who is en route to the good old OC at this very moment!)  The band has put out a press release on dd.com – you can read it here.  The release date for the album has been announced, along with a lot of other juicy tidbits – including a list of titles, as well as news that the album will be released on CD and vinyl in February.  This is great news!!  So, I find myself in the position of having to rethink the blog topic for today.


The press release is decorated with all kinds of facts and figures on the band, which when one stops to consider what has been accomplished, it’s really quite staggering.  The most interesting line of the entire press release, however, is the sentence at the very end.


As this new chapter begins, they have nothing left to prove, but everything to play for. So for them…All You Need Is Now!”


Truer words have never been written.  As a fan of nearly 30 years at this point (has it REALLY been that long?!?), it is truly refreshing to see the band embracing what many of us in the community have really felt for quite a while now.  This band has nothing left to prove to any of us…fan, listener, critic, or even hater.  Their history speaks entirely for itself.  They don’t need chart topping hits to prove their worth…and this band is definitely worthy, they just needed to believe it themselves, and I think we’re finally there.  


It’s a good day to be a Duranie.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this news. Loved the blog and it is very true. As long as Duran loves the music they are writing and playing that is the important part. They have not had to prove anything for a long time. They have always done their own thing with each CD to change their sound. I too have been a fan for nearyly 30 years and will be one for a long time to come.

We (Amanda and Rhonda) appreciate discussion and differences of opinion. We respectfully ask that you fully read the blog before bitching us out. If you're only here to take us down a notch, note that we moderate replies (meaning we're not printing rude comments). Thanks a bunch!
