The 63-year-old singer, leader of the band that has sold over 100 million records worldwide, talked about the excesses he experienced at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in Los Angeles and how everything changed after his marriage to model Yasmin Parvaneh

When they were at their peak of popularity in the 1980s, Duran Duran didn’t miss out on anything. Including the drugs they ordered through the room service of the Los Angeles hotel where they used to stay and where there was a different party every night. To tell this and other anecdotes related to the British band born in Birmingham in 1978 and which has sold over 100 million records worldwide, was Simon Le Bon, singer and leader of the legendary Duran, guest of the podcast “Life’s A Beach” by Alan Carr.

«Droga al room service»

«I have been going to the Sunset Marquis Hotel for 40 years – said the 63-year-old interpreter of“ Save a Prayer ”- even if the first time I went there, the rate was not that high, but it was much lower. Either way, if you knew the right people, you could order drugs there from room service. I really mean it. And we did it! We used to have parties. We lived through the 1980s and then even beyond ».

Merit of the wife

To completely change Le Bon’s register, pushing him to say goodbye to his life of excesses of all kinds and transforming him instead into a perfect husband and father, was the meeting with the splendid model Yasmin Parvaneh, whom he married in 1985 and with whom had three daughters (Amber, 32, Saffron, 30, and Tallulah, 27). “Things changed when I got married – the singer admitted again – but the rest had to change by force.” With over twenty singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and thirty in the UK Top 40, Duran Duran are considered to be one of the most successful bands of the 1980s, and able to hold out for the next three decades.
