Duran Duran are a British new wave band formed in Birmingham in 1978 by keyboardist Nick Rhodes and bassist John Taylor. The band took their name from Roger Vadim’s 1960’s cult sci-fi classic film “Barbarella,” starring Jane Fonda. There was a character played by Milo O’Shea called Duran Duran.
We think they have a bright future ahead of them. Their song, “All of You Erol Alkan’s Extended Rework,” is in this week’s HOT SPOT!
