Duran Duran Member Leaves
Guitarist Andy Taylor quits...again. No surprise, but who could have imagined that Duran Duran would still be around to break up 25 years after "Planet Earth" first charted in the UK? Meanwhile, blogger Andrew Sullivan is holding a contest to determine the Best (and Worst) Music Video Of The Eighties. The most important is probably Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" but if I were to pick the most iconic, it might be Duran Duran's "Rio" -- nothing says the Eighties and the rise of MTV quite like those lads on that yacht.
