    Sawa them twice with the original lineup. Met John Taylor during the Spamelot 15 minute break two years ago. Nice guy and very sociable. Spoke for 10 minutes or 12 minutes. I think he was checking me out way too long, even though he was with his wife and daugther. Though I didn't mind. Damn, was he tall? He was taller than me. BTW, post Roger Taylor pics, please. He is the reason I am his height. During the 80s-00s...just please post them. Dude had some serious muscles back then and now.

    Duran fan from when they still wore ruffled shirts.

    Depressed to learn there's one more concert I won't be seeing.

    Le sigh.

    Hey Gillette. Fan from the ruffled shirt days here as well. Ah, those "Careless Memories." Not sure if you've heard the new CD, Red Carpet Massacre but there are like 5 tunes on there that really pay homage to the sound of their first album, yes I said album. Much more so than the bubblegum sound of "Astronaut." John T described it as "the classic Duran2 sound wrapped in Chrome." Yeah, there are a few that are more heavily influenced by the Timberlake/Timbaland machine but you won't here Duran2 bass like that anywhere today on "Planet Earth." They are supposedly returning to the states in early/mid fall. Great 2 hr show even without Andy, mostly of their greatest hits and even a few obscure classics. Highly recommend it!

    Well in Atlanta 2 weeks ago 2night they opened with the first three trax off the new cd Red Carpet Massacre. No one seemed to mind really as everyone was so jacked to be there and these tunes have that classic Duran sound with the funk of say Notorious. It never fails to amaze me that people are shocked to hear how good they are live. Then again they came along at a time when you HAD to play live.

    Their fourth tune? Hungry Like the Wolf followed by the hits: Planet Earth, an extended crowd sing along Reflex, Ordinary World, Come Undone, Save a Prayer (everyone held up their lit cell phones to this tune -looked awesome) A View to a Kill, and the best song on the new cd, Skin Divers.

    They then did a wicked "electro-set," paying homage to a band, Kraftwerk, that had a huge influence on early Duran. All four came to the very front of the stage and played 'synth style" instruments. Yes even Roger. Very Depeche Mode like with electro-reworked versions of Skin Trade, All She Wants Is, classic Last Chance on the Stairway, new tune Tempted and a clever cover of Warm Leatherette.

    Then they returned to the respective instruments and played an extended Notorious, a longg version of Girls on Film that everyone thought was the finale as Simon introduced the band during this tune. Next was the hit from their last cd, Reach up for the Sunrise and a kickin Wild Boys. The finale/ encore was a crowd pleasing Rio.

    Not sure if these links will work but these are pics from their "electro set" : Duranduran.com The official Duran Duran website

    And this should be the gallery pics from their latest tour: Duranduran.com The official Duran Duran website

    If those links don't work? Just enter the site by clicking on the top left of the page to which the link will take you and then click on "Gallery" on the scrolling bar and click on "Duran Duran Blog" on the far right just under the scrolling bar. Some really cool photos of the now infamous electro-set. They have pretty much stuck to this set for the whole tour. The crowd was awesome as everyone seemed to be grateful to be sent back to the less carefree days of their youth. It was like it was 1982-1985 all over again.

    OMG Here's former Duran2 guitarist's OWN monster cock. I can't believe I forgot Warren what with the interest here at LPSG. Saw em in 2000, front row, right in front me. Not NEARLY as popular then, ergo the great seats. Indeed noticed a bulge but had NO idea at the time he was so hung. It a good thing. I would have been crying the whole time like a 15 yr old girl. LOL His arms were huge at the time. Quite the stud, eh? BTW he was the original guitarist for a cool 80's band you may remember "Missing Persons." I give you, Warren : Queer Bites fabulous gay porn blog - Celebrity Spunk: Warren Cuccurullo

    I am glad they are touring again! more power to them. I did hear one new song on the radio and Simon can still sing just as well as he did in the 1980's!
