Jan 3 Nick chats to Italian Vanity Fair about using the perfume White Lady of Casamorati 1888, by Xerjoff, in the BM video. “Simon has a much sharper sense of smell than mine, literally smells a perfume and can identify everything it contains. He's a talent. I am more instinctive." “We [with Xerjoff] will still work together in the coming months to create the true scent that captures the essence of Duran Duran." (News.IT).

Jan 5 Andy interview in Classic Rock magazine. "“Yes, an ex-security guy thought he’d make himself a few grand. That day I got the eight-thirty a.m. knock: Ugh. What now? ‘They said you better look at this, boss’ – ‘Cocaine crazy Duran Duran’. Okay, well I already knew that! And actually, to be fair, it wasn’t all the band. Nick [Rhodes] didn’t really, and Roger [Taylor]. Not so much Simon [Le Bon]. So that just gets down to me and John. I had to phone my dad, him being a Sun [newspaper] reader. [But he said] ‘Do you think I’m stupid? I remember finding the hash in your pocket when you were fourteen!’” (News), (Article).
Jan 6? In Retropop’s January 2024 issue, Wet Wet Wet bassist Graeme Clark says: “I look at Duran Duran and I respect them because they’ve continually made new music over the last [44] years and it’s a testament to where they sit now. They’re [always] out [touring], they’re back on the road and playing arenas all over the world, and I think it’s because they’ve remained current”. (Read).
Jan 8 Wendy Laister talks about her life in management and PR to MusicBizWorld. "With Duran, you’ve got four people who are really very different to one another, as much as they get along. Nick doesn’t drive, while Simon wants to do every dangerous sport on the planet. But the thing I’ve learned is, when things are right, everybody agrees very quickly. It’s truly a democracy, everybody has to agree on pretty much everything in order to move forward." (Read).

Feb 7 Richard Blade posts about 1984: "Capitol was planning a worldwide press conference with DD on February 7th at the Magic Castle in Hollywood. The date was not an accident. It had been deliberately picked because it would be twenty years [ago] to the day, February 7th, 1964, that The Beatles had arrived in America, and now, exactly two decades later, the Fab Five! The [full 90 minutes] press conference was broadcast live on three continents, and elevated Duran Duran to a new level of stardom. When I hit the [Fabulous Forum] stage [that night] to bring on Duran Duran, the wall of sound that erupted from the sold-out audience was deafening. For the band it was ten times louder.(Read FB).

The most famous man in the world has made the most humbling of gestures in that – on the inside, we all bleed the same. One in two of us... That's 50 per cent of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetimes. With the odds stacked this high, for many it’s no longer a case of “if” but “when”." (Read), (Read).

May 15 Simon on The Singers Talk podcast, recorded Oct 2023. He hated piano lessons, but moved to the choir because he got paid a shilling. John Gielgud says it's not fear, it's adrenalin.
