Talk:Duran Duran


Roger Taylor is "wiki-linked" to the entry for the "other" Roger Taylor, who is the drummer for Queen. It should be noted that these are two different individuals. Is there a way to correct this?

Yes, though it makes it inconvenient when both of them are drummers. We should move the contents of the current Roger Taylor to another article title, perhaps Roger Taylor (Queen), replace the article Roger Taylor with a disambiguation page listing the two, and creating a new Roger Taylor (Duran Duran) page. By the way, could you please sign your posts on talk pages? --Robert Merkel
I have fixed this...

I've changed your fix slightly. See Talk:Roger Meddows-Taylor for more info. --fvw 16:28, 2004 Oct 14 (UTC)

Also, the text states: "Warren Cuccurullo stepped in as a guitarist in 1986, and with Lebon, Rhodes, and Nick and John Taylor produced the hit song Notorious, which went to number 2 in the USA." There is no *Nick Taylor.* Should it have been Andy Taylor? Roger Taylor?

fixed this too -- "Rhodes" and "Nick" are the same person (although his name is really Nick Bates. Go figure.). see Duran Duran -- Catherine

Description: Factual history of the band, the guitarist, the album.

Remarks: I've worked hard at writing these thoroughly and well, but since DD are such an obscure & retro act to many people, I'm not sure who else looks at these articles.  :) Some feedback would be helpful! I know Rio needs more information on the music and the tracks themselves (as opposed to the chart history); still pondering the best way to approach that in NPOV, since the album is near and dear to my heart. I'd also like to include more on how the album and the videos impacted the music industry, and could use some help from those with a broader perspective.

BTW, I'm aware that much of the info in the 2000s section of the Duran Duran article is time-sensitive; I take responsibility for keeping it up-to-date, shifting things to past-tense, and putting events in perspective as time passes. If I feel I won't be able to continue to maintain the article, I'll make sure it's left in an appropriately timeless state.

seems ok

I've read your stuff and enjoyed reading. I didn't see factual errors, you may want to check participation at the Live Aid concert: are you sure they didn't attend the London part of the concert? You may be right though.

Positive on Live Aid -- I have it on tape and they were in Philly -- Power Station (with Duran's John and Andy) was touring the US that summer, and I suspect it was easier for the rest of Duran to come to them than to ship PS's gear overseas and back. PS also performed that day, so John and Andy appeared twice with different acts, as did PS's Tony Thompson who also performed with Led Zeppelin that day. Whee for ancient music trivia!
