[ # ] Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet have had a rivalry since the ’80s!
May 23rd, 2019 under Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, This Morning


Back in the ’80s, they were several no-no-notorious rivalries in the music world. There was Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe, and Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Now we know there was another one from the era.

Hey Martin Kemp, is there something I should know? He says that Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet have had one going for on over 30 years. Back then on planet Earth, they were two of the hottest New Wave bands to come out of Britain during the second British invasion. Were they fighting over music videos or chart placements of their songs? No, that is so not being like a rock star. Instead, the bassist said on This Morning today that if those wild boys were at a party together they would see who could drink the most? Which I say Simon Le Bon would win the gold hands down or bottoms up. Another time, they wanted to see who could stay up the latest. Their final battle, back then, happened on Pop Quiz and D2 were the true winners.

That was then, there’s a new moon on Monday because now the two bands, who were part of the New Romantic scene, are both working on musicals with their songs. Who will win West End? Only time will tell. Sorry Kemp, but I will always be a Duranie, so my reflex-flex-flex-flex is to root for them.

Kemp also talked about if Spandau Ballet will ever get back together. He says he is up for it, but only if all five of them say yes at the same time. Hopefully, that will happen! However, getting five people to do that is not easy. See the Spice Girls.

Now, let’s just talk about Kemp. Didn’t he age really well? I think he is sexier now than he was then. Plus, his positive energy is contagious. Maybe I can be persuaded to change my allegiance.
