Duran Duran 40th Anniversary Results!

Duran Duran 40th Anniversary Survey


In early 2018, three members of the Unofficial Duran Duran Message Board, John Archbell, Jeff Bistline and Trevor Tinberg devised and created a 40th Anniversary survey with a view to determine what kind of memorabilia Duran Duran fans would appreciate more, in time for when the band would eventually kick off their own 40th Anniversary celebrations – or better known as DD40, later in the year.


After receiving approximately 400 responses from Duran Duran fans across the world, with their completed questionnaire, the results were presented to the bands’ Manager, Wendy Laister at Magus Entertainment


Thinking they had a strong case, due to the overwhelming, positive feedback from the fans, they waited for a reply and a subsequent decision that we could feed back to their fans.


The seasons came and went and nothing ever came back from Magus. It was then discovered DDHQ were planning on deferring DD40 to 2021 and to celebrate it on the 40th year from when their first single Planet Earth debuted in the UK, in January 1981.


This exhaustive booklet is testament to the passion, grit and dogged determination by the team who desperately wanted to be heard, on behalf of the thousands of Duran Duran fans that still fly the flag for the band from Birmingham, UK.


What you read here are the results of the DD40 40th Anniversary results and is exactly what the management received.

    1. Hi Frank

      The book is switched off on mobile as it wont function correctly. It works well on Android Tablet, IPad and Desktop.


  1. The booklet is working fine on my desktop.
    I participated in this survey, and it’s fantastic to see the results laid out in this format.
    I wish management had done something with all this great fan input.

    1. That’s good to hear about your user experience. The book plugin wasn’t cheap but I felt it was essential. I have more plans for it in the future.

  2. I wonder if Wendy ever listens to anything any DD fans says? Nothing against the woman and she obviously has DD’s interests at heart but cmon it could all be so much different and whole lot better. But the boys seem to like her and after the management / s they have in the past then they probally like it this way.

  3. Hello! just found your website, but i cannot see the Booklet. I’m using Chrome on Desktop, what am i doing wrong? Thanks!
