Looks like my old flames are all reunited and touring, and talking about how evil our government is. Rolling Stone interviews Duran Duran in their current issue online. In a "fifteen-minute rant about the U.S. government, apropos of nothing," the brilliant political commentator/guitarist Andy Taylor says, "I tell you, they're going to change the American Constitution to let an Austrian Nazi who's admitted using steroids become president ..."
Yeah, whatever. I like what Alice Cooper said about pop-star political views.
Still, the article is a fun read, partcularly if you're a child of the '80s and an ex-Duranie like me. This cracked me up: Simon LeBon "offers his wrist to smell. 'Do you like my cologne? It's called Farts-A-Lot.'"
Ah, but it was that charm, that irresistible charm, not the cologne (or the political commentary!), that won me over to the Fab Five when I was 14!
