If you were lucky enough to catch Duran Duran's UK tour, then you were also lucky enough to catch sight of Dawne Adams, who played percussion with the band on that leg of the ALL YOU NEED IS NOW tour. Since Roger was one of the reasons Dawne got in to drumming in the first place, it seems somewhat appropriate that she ended up sharing a stage with him years later! She was kind enough to sit down with the Duran Duran VIP website for a Q&A - count us among the new fans she has made! Click here

When thinking of iconic Duran Duran videos, certainly the gorgeous clip for "Ordinary World" is one of the first that come to mind. Directed by Nick Egan (INXS, Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger, Bon Jovi), the video for the song was a huge part of the band's early 90s resurgence. The guys reunited with Nick when choosing a director for the first video from the ALL YOU NEED IS NOW album, the single of the same name. We are grateful Nick took time from his busy schedule to do such a terrific Written Interview with the Fan Community! Click here
PR’s are often sworn to a code of silence due to the very nature of their work. They serve, protect and guard their clients interests in a shroud of secrecy. Often very little is actually known about the lives of these people.
