Duran Duran will reunite with their former guitarist Andy Taylor for their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction.
Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon revealed that the band was “definitely” planning to reunite with the former guitarist.
“I’ve already had a definite yes from Andy. He’s definitely up for it,” Le Bon said to Rolling Stone. He also revealed that Warren Cuccurullo, who was an official member of the group from 1989 to 2001, would also likely be involved.
“They are both extremely excited and very, very grateful and honored in the same way that Nick, Roger, John and I are as well. We’re talking about how we’re going to present ourselves on the night,” he added.
Taylor joined Duran Duran in 1980. He became a key member of the band during its success throughout the ’80s, playing on the group’s first five studio albums — Duran Duran (1981), Rio (1982), Seven and the Ragged Tiger (1983), Arena (1984) and Notorious (1986). Taylor left the band after the release of Notorious.
Later, Taylor reunited with Duran Duran for another album, 2004’s Astronaut, but again left the band in 2006.
