Saturday Night Concert: Duran Duran

~ At the height of the powers ~

It’s hard to describe just how —BIG— Duran Duran were from 81-85. They took some time off for some side projects and never really reassembled with the same oomph. One thing that was always under-rated was the fact that these guys could play. They really were much better musicians than anyone wanted to give them credit for.


Once upon a time, MTV had a live concert every Saturday night. Not a recording of a show, but an actual live concert. I can’t give you a live concert every Saturday, but I can give you some excellent live concert videos of some fantastic shows, and we can all pretend its sort of the 80s all over again.

Saturday Night Concert: Tedeschi Trucks Band

I saw this same tour, about 6 weeks before this recording, and yet it was a totally different set list, such is their versatility. And we were outside on an insanely face-meltingly hot day in NC, with the sunset aimed right at us.

People forget just how dynamic they were in their early-80s heyday
