Survey question: If You Could Be a Fly on the Wall…

If you’re at all like me, there are times when you wonder what really goes on in the studio. What is it really like to be Duran Duran, working on a new album? Do they argue a lot? If so, what about? How long do jam sessions last before they finally find something that works? Does Simon write lyrics in the studio? How long does Nick really spend before he decides something is perfect, and does his tinkering…or what *I* envision as tinkering…annoy the rest of the band?

There are moments when I wish I’d been a fly on the wall. So, today, we’re asking YOU the same question. If you could have been a fly on the wall to watch any album being recorded—which one would you choose and why?

There’s no poll being counted for this one, it’s just your answer that matters! Comment below or post it on social media. What say you?!?

Once upon a time, there were two Duran Duran fans. One named Amanda, the other named Rhonda. Over many vodka tonics, they would laugh about the idea of one day writing a book about their fan experiences. While that manuscript is still being composed...Rhonda thought they should write a blog. (What was she THINKING?!) Lo and behold: The Daily Duranie was born.


  1. I have always had this same curiosity about recording new albums. Although I don’t have one particular album I would like to observe, I think maybe one of the last few would be preferred simply because they have been able to take their time writing and recording new material. The first three albums were written, recorded, produced within a year and not much time for them to debate artistically.

  2. I would have loved to be sitting during the first album as they were all knew to each other and see how they decided how to record the guys music with Simon’s lyrics.
