Duran Duran releases their first song with Andy Taylor since 2006
September 21st, 2023 under Duran Duran. [ Comments: none ]

Duran Duran started out as a quintet with Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, Roger Taylor, and Andy Taylor (no relation). But then Andy left the band in the mid-’80s. Only to return for a bit 20 years later. But he left again in 2006.

Last year, Duran Duran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they started communicating again. So much so that they asked him if he was interested in strumming on a few of the songs for their new album. And he said yes.

And today, we got to hear the Fab Five together again on the single Black Moonlight. Along with playing the guitar, Andy did some of the sound engineering on the track.

The band has changed their sound over the decades, but the feel is the same. And having Andy back feels like home.

We are grateful that he is making such strides in his stage 4 prostate cancer battle and that he was able to record with his mates. Hopefully, not for the last time. And hopefully, we won’t have to wait another 20 years for it to happen.

Duran’s new album, Danse Macabre, comes out on Le Bon’s birthday, October 27th. Can you tell I am Duranie?


Andy Taylor isn’t letting cancer stop him from releasing a new album!
July 19th, 2023 under Duran Duran. [ Comments: none ]

In 2018, Andy Taylor was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, but he isn’t letting that stop him.

It has slowed the guitarist down, but he is powering through it like a Power Station. And on September 8th, he will be releasing his new album, Man’s a Wolf to Man.

Today, he released the first single, This Will Be Ours, from the album. I don’t know about you, but it is giving me a vintage David Bowie feel. Something you never heard him play when he was with Duran Duran.

Man’s A Wolf to Man is available for pre-order.

BTW This is not the only new music we are going to hear him strum on. Taylor is joining his former bandmates, Duran Duran, on a few of the songs on their upcoming record.


Duran Duran to play a benefit in honor of Andy Taylor

Duran Duran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year, but Andy Taylor was not able to join his former bandmates because he is battling stage 4 prostate cancer.

Even though the guitarist is no longer with the band, they still support him. So next month they are doing something in honor of their friend.

The band wrote, “Duran Duran will play a benefit concert for The Cancer Awareness Trust following news that friend and former bandmate Andy Taylor had been diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer in 2018.

“It will take place Aug. 19 at The Guild Theatre in Menlo Park, California.”

VIP tickets go on sale Monday at 12n and then to the general public on Wednesday at 12n.


Duran Duran reunites with Andy Taylor for their upcoming album!
March 21st, 2023 under Duran Duran. [ Comments: none ]

Duran Duran started out as a five-member band, but Andy Taylor has been on and off with them for most of their 40 years. After several stints with the band, he opted to leave them and never returned in 2006.

Then last year, they were inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame. Andy Taylor was looking forward to reuniting with Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor, and Roger Taylor. However, he wasn’t able to attend because he revealed that he has been battling stage IV prostate cancer.

Recently, Le Bon hung out with Andy and finally gave him his statuette from the HoF.

I guess the two had a really good conversation because there are reports that the guitarist is working with D2 on their new album, and the band confirmed it.

“Duran Duran are thrilled to confirm a special new music project is in the works, set for release later this year on BMG,” Duran Duran wrote in a statement. “The new recordings will feature extended Duran Duran family and friends, old and new, including our former band mate Andy Taylor who will join us on guitar on a few tracks.”

As a Duranie, I can’t wait to hear their tracks together because I have missed them as a quintet. Hopefully, he will be healthy enough to join them on the road because they said they will be touring later this year.


Duran Duran’s John Taylor still makes me hungry like the wolf!
February 23rd, 2023 under Duran Duran. [ Comments: none ]

John Taylor has been rockin’ with Duran Duran for over 40 years, and the 62-year-old is still as sexy as ever! I want to have a union with his snake and find out if he is still a wild boy! I need to have a new moon on Monday full of careless memories with him.

Do you also want him to make your planet earth shake as you come undone and pray to a new religion? Save a prayer for the morning after!

OK, I will stop now! But not before I share his song I Do What I Do with you. Seriously, isn’t the tune from the 9½ Weeks one of the most erotic songs you’ve ever heard?
