Archival Duran Duran interview footage from 1981

Posted August 6th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

Pretty amazing early days interview with Duran Duran. A film crew just randomly spotted the then unknown band in the midst of a photo shoot promoting its debut LP and stopped for a quick interview. The band sounds very earnest about its quest for mainstream dominance. Andy Taylor even goes so far as to proclaim – with a straight face – that the band doesn’t drink or do drugs, while Simon Le Bon and John Taylor can barely keep their laughter stifled. The interview is evidently a secret bonus feature of the DVD Listen to London, which chronicles the “UK Post Punk Indy Rebellion” in 1981.
