As I begin to look back at Duran Duran history that took place during this week, I have to acknowledge that it is a big week for my personal Duran history. Lots of good memories happened for me between March 14th and March 20th. I think those reminders are coming at just the right time.
- Simon and Warren were interviewed on the Simon Mayo show on Radio 1; they also performed acoustically the songs Ordinary World, Perfect Day and Come Undone in 1995.
- Duran Duran played at the House of Blues in Atlanta in 2001.
- The band appeared on the tv show, Extra, in 2005.
- Capitol Records/EMI released the double CD Strange Behaviour, containing remixes of songs from “Planet Earth” to “Drowning Man”; many mixes never before available on CD in 1999. Anyone own a copy of this?
- Duran Duran played at SXSW Music Festival at Time Out in Stubb’s Bar-B-Q in Austin, TX, USA in 2011.
- The band appeared on MTV Europe’s Most Wanted in 1995.

- John Taylor’s EP, Autodidact, was released through B5 website in 1997. The CD has video for Feelings Are Good.
- Duran Duran played at the Allstate Arena in Chicago in 2005 as part of the Astronaut Tour. This was the first show that Rhonda and I attended together.
- In 2017, the band played at Agua Caliente Resort in Rancho Mirage, CA. Yes, they played two nights at the same venue.
- According to the internet, Hold Back the Rain was written in 1982. It is one of my favorites!
- In one monumental night, Duran Duran took the stage for the first time at Madison Square Garden in New York City in 1984.

- The single, Careless Memories, was released in the UK in 1981.

All in all, a pretty good moment in Duran Duran history. Any event that we missed that we should have included?
