Duran Duran still has a fan club!  Which they are suing.

Word has been spreading about Duran Duran suing their fan club.  I don't know what I'm more suprised about.  The fact that Duran Duran still has a fan club, or how they still have time to sue their fan club.  What with all the time they spend hanging out on Todd Nuke 'Em's iPod.  

But yeah, Duran Duran has officially taken issue with their fan club, and are heading to court.  Please, God.  Let this one end up on Judge Joe Brown.

 

I ASK YOU FOR SO LITTLE

 

 

But Todd (and other fans) can rest easy. Duran Duran is reassuring their audience that their lawsuit isn't aimed at them. The band has posted a statement to their website saying they "value and respect their many fans around the world."   The group explains that the lawsuit is to protect their rights against the company that had been hired to manage their fan club --- not the fans themselves. Duran Duran adds that they're no longer working with WorldWide Fan Club Inc, but has "brought their official fan community in-house." They add that they will "continue to make every effort to provide the highest level of service" to their followers.  Which makes me ask the question:

What the HELL does a Duran Duran fan club do?

I mean, there were only so many Duran Duran songs, and the true fans already have them.  How many times can you hear about Rio dancing in the sand before you move on to some Midnight Oil or Information Society.

 

 

        

Bet you didn't know that song was about a camel. 

     

 

 

In an Ordinary World, this would be handled in a friendly manner.  But This is Planet Earth, and they are Notorious for being Wild Boys.  Perhaps it was a Reflex, but Duran Duran got Hungry Like The Wolf and filed a breach of contract suit against WorldWide in a Chicago area court last Friday. However, many headlines in the U.S. and Britain this week stated that the group was suing their "own fan club."  Which is a Big Thing   ...Girls On Film..  I could't figure out a way to work that one in, but I like that song.
