Duran Duran honor the late David Bowie


Duran Duran paid tribute to the legendary David Bowie with their just released cover of his classic "Five Years."

Frontman Simon LeBon said, "My life as a teenager was all about David Bowie. He is the reason why I started writing songs. Part of me still can't believe in his death five years ago, but maybe that's because there's a part of me where he's still alive and always will be."

The Ziggy Stardust LP captured the group’s attention -- especially the song "Five Years." LeBon added that he "can't begin to explain how honored I feel for Duran Duran to be given the opportunity to perform this icon, and to place our name alongside Bowie's for this commemoration of his music."
