Duran Duran Visit Stage School

1980s pop legends DURAN DURAN were besieged by screaming teenagers today (11FEB04) when they visited a performing arts school.

SIMON LE BON, NICK RHODES and ROGER TAYLOR visited the BRIT PERFORMING ARTS + TECHNOLOGY SCHOOL in Croydon, near London, England, which is funded by the British record industry, who organise next week's (17FEB04) BRIT AWARDS

Duran Duran are set to pick up the Outstanding Achievement Award at the EARLS COURT 2 bash.

The three stars were bemused that the 14-19 year-old students recognised them, but were impressed by the school and the youngsters attending it.

Le Bon, 45, says, "We did not come here expecting anything - they are very confident children.

"I am very impressed. It is just fantastic and I wish I had gone to a school like this. The kids are so happy. "I really did not know about this school before today.

"Suddenly, it makes a lot more sense - the whole Brits thing. Awards ceremonies are slightly bogus if that's all there is."

Former BRIT School students include KATIE MELUA, LYNDEN DAVID HALL, DAMAGE's ANDREZ HARRIOT, AMY WINEHOUSE, MORCHEEBA musician ROSS GODFREY and ANOTHER LEVEL singers DANE BOWERS and WAYNE WILLIAMS.
