One of the happiest moments in my career was being able to meet and photograph Duran Duran at a intimate cocktail party in San Francisco. Duran Duran & Gray Area Foundation For The Arts April 15th, 2011
"Duran Duran & Gray Area Foundation For The Arts invite you to join them to hear about their newly launched collaboration on an online data visualization that seeks to reflect public opinion on what is needed in the world right now, inspired by Duran Duran's new single and album 'ALL YOU NEED IS NOW'"
I was invited to photograph the cocktail party. It was one of the best days of my life. I got to hang out with Duran Duran and take photos of them! Something I have wanted to do since I was 11 years old. They all signed a rare Japanese 7" record I have featuring the songs "Planet Earth ' and" Late Bar" . They also signed a rare limited edition 7" record sleeve which folds out to a poster of them. That 7" features the songs " The Reflex" and " New Religion". It was seriously one of the best days of my life! Epic!
In reference to the question,What's with the title: All You Need Is Now?
"It's about where were are in our lives and careers. It's about our fans as well, some of who have followed the band for 30 years. It's been a long road. Sometimes it's like standing on a mountain and looking down. It's quite daunting and can make you feel quite dizzy. The idea is, if you just concentrate on where you're at at the moment now, it's a wonderful life."~Simon Le Bon thisisnottingham.co.uk/news
