Depresssion Distraction– Duran Duran!

Simon LeBon, John Taylor, Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor, Nick Rhodes in the 1980’s

OK I need to interject something fun into this depressing story I’m telling right now… and what better way to do that than to tell you that last night I saw Duran Duran in concert! πŸ™‚

OK now I must confess. I am almost a Durannie. And I say almost because sometimes, Durannies, on the whole, are a little weird. But I really enjoy their music and have always been a fan… ever since the 80’s. πŸ™‚

And I have to say, they sound incredible… Every bit as polished, energetic, and entertaining as ever. Now that the original 5-member lineup has returned, you can tell that their creative spark has returned as well. The new album, Astronaut, is one of the best they’ve done since the 80’s.

Roger, Nick, Simon, Andy and John today… the original lineup returns!!

And you gotta admit, these guys are aging VERY well. Who is my favorite member of Duran Duran? I’ll let you guys and gals guess that. It’s not one of the popular favorites, I’ll give that much of a hint. Who is your favorite member? πŸ™‚
