Today in Duran History – Simon Interview 1987

On this date in 1987, Simon Le Bon was interviewed on CFNY 102.1 in Toronto.  This interview took place a couple of days before Duran Duran played in that city as support for David Bowie’s Glass Spider Tour.  Did anyone see a show from that tour?  I would be interested to see how both Duran was received by serious Bowie fans and vice versa.  I saw David Bowie when he toured with Nine Inch Nails in the mid-1990s.  I was shocked and appalled that the audience stood and were into Nine Inch Nails but sat or left during Bowie!  I wonder if other people noticed something similar with Duran Duran during this 1987 tour.

Of course, when I think of promotion from this era, I think of Three to Get Ready.  Part One is below and shows the band communicating with the media!
