Hey, Duran Duran, Apology Accepted

In case you haven't heard, Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon is having problems with his voice. No jokes, please. Le Bon has come a long way since Live Aid. Anyway, as a thank you to UK and other European fans who expected to see the band but now won't because of Le Bon's health issue, Duran Duran has released a nine-song performance from their May 12 show in Rome. Obviously, I didn't have tickets to any of their appearances across the pond, but I'll take this gift anyway. It's a high-quality mix of new material like "All You Need Is Now" and old favorites such as "Careless Memories." Seriously, I hope Le Bon's voice bounces back soon. Their recent shows have been very well received, and the new album is definitely worth a listen. You can download the live set here.
