Ask Katy

Hi Katy,Why do the fans always have to hear about what Duran Duran is up to from other sources before dd.com actually posts anything about it? Should dd.com be the first place people hear news? Who's not doing their job?

THAT IS A GOOD AND TIMELY QUESTION.

THE BAND AND I EXPERIENCE DAILY FRUSTRATIONS ABOUT THIS. BECAUSE EVERYONE IS SO ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT DURAN DURAN, THERE IS A TON OF TALK ABOUT THE BAND AT THE MOMENT. AND A LOT OF WHAT IS BEING SAID IS INDEED TRUE. HOWEVER, WE CANNOT CONFIRM THINGS ON THE WEBSITE UNTIL EVERY "T" IS CROSSED AND EVERY "I" IS DOTTED. WHILE EVERY ONE ELSE CAN SPECULATE, WE DON'T HAVE THAT LUXURY HERE. SO IT DOES SEEM THAT BY THE TIME WE "BREAK" NEWS, IT HAS ALREADY BEEN BROKEN. FROM A LEGAL STAND POINT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, WE REALLY DO HAVE TO WAIT ON THINGS. AND WE KNOW HOW ANNOYING THAT IS...BUT FEEL THAT IT IS BETTER TO BE BUZZED ABOUT THAT NOT BUZZED AT ALL!
