Thanks very much to everyone for the kind messages today!
Can’t believe it’s this time of year again… every birthday seems to come around so much faster than the last one. I guess that’s just called getting old.
It’s been a fun, creative and interesting year for me - I have continued working with, and developing, some great new artists at my studio. The family and I moved house, and as you all know it can be a stressful time, but it was very well worth the effort. Had various fun trips abroad with DD that included performing at the Austin Formula One last November. Really enjoyed going to my first race and being invited to go up the observation tower.
I am very pleased and excited that the new, fantastic sounding, Duran Duran album is now finally finished! Am really looking forward to its release, and the subsequent touring and promoting over the forthcoming months. We have some super locations lined up, including the Hollywood Bowl, and that will be the first time there for me. The album features an array of eclectic guests so hoping some of them will join us on stage over the next year.
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, as I am just back from rehearsing with DD today and want to spend some time with my wonderful and patient wife!
All the best
