Classic v. Modern - Not the same
"Planet Earth" is an ultimate Duran Duran favorite as performed live.
Wembley was simple on stage and electric within the audience. The first note was powerful and evoked a sense of something amazing to come.
Coachella was busy on stage and lacked the profoundly eager audience reaction. Why was the band not already on stage? Why was there a need for a backup vocal?
I am devastated to compare Duran Duran then and now. Yet there is a striking difference with and without Andy Taylor. Time has moved on and Duran Duran has moved on. I haven't.
Do I have a right to be stuck in the past?
