Ask Katy

Hi Katy, Just want to let all the guys know how much I love the Astronaut album. Am loving the cyber-sex feel to all of the tunes! John, just wondering if your parents were supportive of you becoming a "rock star." I know you and Nick were the founder of Duran. Did it all just fall into place? Jessica-USA

"Yeah parents were pretty supportive, I didn't have to rebel too much against them.. they gave me a year after flunking art school to try and make a career in music work. It wasn't easy for them at that time, my Dad just had taken early retirement. A year doesn't seem like a lot, but boy, at that age, when you are as ambitious as Nick and I were, it was just enough.
