who are those guys?

Ask Katy

Hi Katy. Can you tell me more about the sax player touring with Duran? And also, who is that guy who is always around the band following them around with a video camera?? Are they making a movie? Thanks, Iris

HI IRIS. HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

GAVIN ELDER IS FROM SOUTH AFRICA BY WAY OF THE UK. HE NOW LIVES IN TOKYO. HE MET THE BAND THROUGH SIMON'S PARTNER IN SYN, NICK WOOD. GAVIN IS A VIDEO DIRECTOR, DOCUMENTARIAN AND COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR. HE STARTED FILMING THE BAND DURING THEIR STINT IN JAPAN AND THE RELATIONSHIP GREW FROM THERE.THOUGH THE BAND HAS NOT MADE DEFINITIVE PLANS FOR GAVIN'S FOOTAGE - A FILM, A DOCUMENTARY, ETC - IT WILL ABSOLUTELY BE RELEASED IN SOME FORM IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

JOHN AMATO HAS BEEN PLAYING SAX WITH THE GUYS ON SOME (BUT NOT ALL) THE SHOWS AND HE CERTAINLY ADDS A LOT OF EXCITEMENT WHEN HE'S ON THE STAGE!

JOHN A. MET JOHN T. NINE YEARS AGO AND TOURED WITH TERRORISTEN. HE HAS BEEN PLAYING THE SAX AND CLARINET FOR 20 YEARS AND WHILE HE IS FROM NEW YORK, HE CALLS LA HIS HOME NOW. HE WAS ASKED BY JOHN TO PLAY WITH THE DURAN DURING THEIR SUMMER LA SHOW AND IT WORKED OUT SO WELL HE HAS COME BACK FOR MORE!

Top: Gavin; Bottom: John
