Duran Duran: 'Timbaland Project Was A F*cking Nightmare'
March 21, 2011
Duran Duran have admitted that working with Timbaland on their 2007 album 'Red Carpet Massacre' was a nightmare.
Drummer Roger Taylor has said that working with the producer wasn't the easiest process.
"That whole project was a f*cking nightmare. We delivered an album to Sony that was a natural-sounding, almost rock album, and they were like 'We need something a bit pop, do you fancy doing a couple of tracks with Timbaland?,'" Taylor told The Quietus.
He added: "The thing was, we got an opportunity to work with Timbaland, so we thought 'Great, let's go for it'. When Timbaland saw the guitar and the bass and the drums come in to the studio, I think he was mortified, because everything's in a box for those guys."
Meanwhile, Duran Duran played a rare intimate gig at Shepherds Bush Empire in Londonearlier this month (March 7).
