Here is the summary of what has happened this past week with Duran Duran, at least from what I saw. This is my attempt to keep my very busy self and the rest of you in the know of what is happening and what has happened. If I missed something, which is highly likely, please let me know so that I could add it here! For the most part, I’m using the official website and Duran’s social media sites for the information.
From the official website/DuranDuranMusic:
The official website posted an excerpt from an interview from the art director at the Vinyl Factory, which was responsible for both All You Need Is Now and A Diamond in the Mind on vinyl. The excerpt shows some of the questions and pictures to represent the answers to those questions. If you are interested in all the questions and all the picture answers, head over to DuranDuranMusic! The paid fan site also has another new interview. This time, it is with photographer, Barry Fidnick, who took photos of the Unstaged screening at MoMA in the fall of 2013. He also happens to be a huge fan!! There is also a giveaway of a print from the MoMA screening!
From social media:
The band’s twitter and Facebook has been advertising some new items in the band’s online store. Some of the new items include hats, a beach towel, a mug and a t-shirt. I have already seen many a Duranie make purchases. If you are interested in seeing the items or buying yourself, go here. If you have gotten something you ordered, we welcome reviews!
Another piece of news is that Rio on vinyl is available on pre-order. This is a double vinyl of the remastered edition from 2009. The link for information is here.
Photos of Simon from a Vanity Fair photo shoot have appeared on the band’s social media. These photos are of a sailing Mr. LeBon! They are worth checking out!
Ultimate Guitar featured Khanada on bass guitar for those interested in learning to play it! You can find that here.
Interview Magazine included an interview with Luxxury, which included their version of Planet Earth, which you can read here. If you want to read Rhonda’s review of the song, go here.
What did I miss??? Please, let me know so that I can add it!
