10 August - Duran Duran Appreciation Day
Duran Duran were one of the most popular groups in the world during the 1980s, thanks to revolutionary music videos that played in heavy rotation in the early days of MTV, and Taylor was one of Duran Duran's most popular members.
Two of their videos have been banned by the BBC. It probably comes as no surprise to learn that the raunchy video for Girls on Film was banned outright by the BBC and heavily censored by MTV. The infamous 1981 video featured a lot of suggestive content and was unsurprisingly deemed too sexual to be broadcast on television without censorship.
Fans of Duran Duran sometimes refer to themselves as Duranies. The official fan club, run out of the band's hometown in Birmingham UK, was simply called the "Duran Duran Fan Club", and issued periodic newsletters and organized events.
