    Several videos available at Duran Duran's page. Here is the video for "The Reflex". He talks about how their previous album "Rio" had become a success and he started thinking about how to proceed with his bass playing, the influences behind the playing style, the song structure, etc...

    Pretty cool to get some behind the scenes info on these songs from a pretty underrated musician.

    More videos can be found at their YouTube page:

  3. Yeah I checked it out, the 80s had a lot of synth bass, but thankfully there was some great electric bass and Taylor definitely delivered.

    I especially liked the Rio video. He is still very passionate about those songs and playing bass in general.

    These were all really good. I will admit I never really got the intro to Some Like It Hot right until now!
