Birthday Message from Roger

All press / news

Well another birthday and another year celebrating far too many years to mention; actually they say 'never ask a woman or a member of Duran Duran their age' because its bad etiquette...I like that one..and of course my birth date is completely fictitious anyway, it was created back in the 80s so it would seem that I was in the same age group as the other members of the band who are actually much much older ....Katy, can you please please back me up on this? Katy?.......Katy???

Anyway, I'm here in London listening to Simon cut final vocals whilst the rest of the album is being mixed in the studio next door by Nate 'Danja' Hills and Jimmy Douglass. Timbaland and Justin Timberlake have signed off on their parts so it seems that we are finally reaching the final furlong of a very long course. I can now say with the greatest of confidence that you will be hearing new material by the summer!

You may have heard a vicious rumour that I will be getting married this year (to my Peruvian girlfriend Gisella)...well it's all absolutely true and we will have tied the knot by the time we start playing live again in the summer - so wish me luck and see you soon!

All Love,
Roger x
