I have a question for John. Has the band ever had any other high profile artists saying they are an influence? I have always felt Michael Jackson's videos from 84 had a Duran touch about them. Mathew
JT SAYS: "Around about that time actually ('84), Michael Jackson got in touch with us and wanted to work with us. Looking back on that now, we really should have made that happen, but things were going so crazy for us at the time we couldn't quite get on the same page."
