Section 101 has long been powering Duran Duran’s fan community website at http://duranduranmusic.com
. As a member, you get a host of cool extra’s, like a great welcome package, exclusive content, an interview with a band member each month, written Q&As from people who have worked with the band, monthly contests and, of course, early access to tickets via pre-sales. The Duran Duran VIP Fan Community is actually one of the first premier sites Section 101 launched, and we continue to be very proud of it.
Bass guitarist John Taylor has recently written a book, IN THE PLEASURE GROOVE: LOVE, DEATH & DURAN DURAN, already released in the UK on September 13th and Australia and New Zealand September 25th, and coming out in North America on October 16th. The book debuted at # 6 on the Sunday Times Bestsellers chart, which was a massive achievement for John, who did a fair bit of promotion to let people know about it. In addition, he graciously opened a new “music suite’ at his old high school in Redditch, England, and gave a wonderful speech to all the aspiring musicians in attendance. We loved what he said and are pleased to share it with you here
