Graham Norton Show Performer Profile #2-Duran Duran

Hi Guys,

So here is my second installment on performers on The Graham Norton Show...and today, we are previewing...drumroll please...Duran Duran!

Now, all of you guys are gonna ask me...Who the hell are they? Well, allow me to explain......

If you were a kid or teen in the '80's, you'll probably instantly recognize the name. Duran Duran... to say they were '80's cultural icons would be an understatement. They were the people behind "Hungry Like the Wolf", "Girls on Film", "Rio", and whatnot. These bastards were everywhere... staples in teenage bedrooms at the time, big on the radio, and they were HUGE on MTV (Back when they actually played music videos)... I bet if any of you were alive during that time, like my parents were (they were born in '68), if you watched MTV, you would be very likely to find them in heavy airplay on there.

They named themselves after an obscure movie character from Barbarella... anyway, they are still going strong with the same guys during all these years.

The album they were promoting was Paper Gods at the time, I think this was season 18 episode 3 when they performed one of the tracks from that album, let me look up what it was....

(A Correction on the last profile... The Shires actually performed in Season 18, not Season 19 like I think they did)...

Stuff like that.
