Duran Duran Forced To Scrap Album After Taylor Departure

DURAN DURAN were forced to scrap their new album after the departure of guitarist ANDY TAYLOR. Taylor walked out midway through the US leg of the British band's world tour in October (06), just as Duran Duran were in the studio working with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE and producer TIMBALAND. Keyboard player NICK RHODES admits the split was difficult, but insists the band's new material is close to completion. He says, "The album had to be scrapped when five became four. We started again and now we're nearly there." And Rhodes has revealed the band are keen to work with Canadian singer NELLY FURTADO on their new release. He says, "We've got one track left that needs a girl's voice on it. We're trying to work something out with Nelly Furtado."

What a crock!! DD are notorious for saying whatever they want to justify their delays. Putting this all on Andy's shoulders is wrong! Right after Andy left, DD said the album was almost done. What a crock!! No wonder Andy decided to leave again. What a bunch of wankers!!
